Could you reword your question? It isn't clear what you want. Is there something not working?
You can use "sudo /sbin/ifconfig" to print out information about your interfaces if that is all you want to do.

Most routers have a web interface where they can be configured. Why do you have your wireless router outside?

As jschiwal mentioned most routers have a web interface and/or CLI interface to configure it. In any case you must first know the IPaddress and username/password of the router to see its configuration.
If you know the ipaddress and username/password of your router then simply try http://<your router IP> from your browser or try telnet <your router IP>. In later case you must have a basic knowlege on CLI interface to check the configurations.

Note: Your system IP should be in the same subnet.
