You can find this by accessing your router setup page.

usually the IP address of the router will be 192.168.0.1, unless the router default settings have been changed. so in your browsers address bar, type http://192.168.0.1/

If that doesn't work, check the manual for the default IP address.

If someone else set up the router, ask them.

Download the manual for your router and read it.

Ok, good. Now, who setup your wireless? Is that person available to give you the information you need?
