Need Help logging in to

I have a problem with my ADSLwireless lan 4 port Ethernet rouer. It lets me connect to the internet fine.
However i cant log in to the router setting when i type the ip at the address bar - it simply displays 'cannot find server' 'page
unavailable', like the one you get when you can't access a website.
Can anyone please help me with this ? im kind of new to such stuffs so any help would be appreciate. Thanks

Whats the routers vendor? e.g. Alink adsl modems need your ip to be set as before it lets you in. If this is the case, you can get this simply by executing as root:

ifconfig eth0 add
It will create a virtual interface with the ip address allowing you thru to the router.

Other vendors have similar methods, but without you telling the make / modle etc we cannot help you
