I have the exact same one bought 2 weeks ago. The default Id and Password is 'admin' and 'password'

Did you ever change it anytime? If not, you could try the reset button at the back. Push a toothpick or pin and hold down the button for 12 seconds to rest it.

Reset the router?

What will this mean....will I have to re config. everything, becuase I didn't set it up/install it.

Yes you will have to set it all up from scratch, just as you did originally. Pressing the "reset" sets it back to factory default settings - exactly the same as when you opened the box!

right, well I can't do that then as I didn't set it up.
Thanks anyway!

If you wont reset the router, then you are going to have to find the correct username and password. If you didnt set it up, then posibly the person who did may have and you could ask them if they changed it.

Reset it. The router is so easy to set-up I doesn't matter if you didn't do it originally.
