actually seeing the router?

i run off a LAN and i want to host games online but i need to know what kind of router i run off of.

is there a way to find out what kind of router im running off of by not actually looking at the router? like find it on the comp?? (sorry if that doesnt make sense)

THANKS!

go to your command prompt, and type "ipconfig"

you will see information about your connection.

note the number for your default gateway. it's probaly

192.168."something"."something"

type that number in your browser. without the http//: or the www. just the number and the "dot"
you should be brought to your router's configuration menu.

the brand should be there. browse throughly and you might find the model number listed there.

Why can't you just look at the router, there's a label on the bottom?

Sounds fishy to me, but that is just my internal instincts playing devils advocate.

Visually challenged person or router is "off site"?

I think it's "off site", aka the neighbor's house.
