i just got DSL, (had to switch from cable)... i have a Addtron adr-e200p router to connect a few computers to with my DSL connection...

but of course DSL needs a login/pw... i can set my router to automaticlly give my ISP this information IF i can get inside the router with the right http://

is there program or something in OS X where it will tell me the router's address so i can go in and make these changes?

thank you very much
jack

Your router's documentation should have it listed.

I'm not sure if the IP addresses vary by router brand, but my Linksys router uses 192.168.1.1 (enter this into a browser window to get the username/password prompt).

try and put your mac to DHCP in the Network Control Panel. If the router has its - and almost all routers have - dhcp server turned on, it will show up after a couple of seconds in the network panel.
You might have to logout or even restart your computer before it correctly picks up the router.
Good luck.

I just did a quick google and came up with the following page: http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/8/lev3/58/pid/567/qid/712926 which indicates that indeed the default IP address 192.168.1.1

Hhmmmm, so far no luck with entering http://192.168.1.1 into the browser (nav, IE) while connected to the router (not WAN port right?)

check the network settings on your Mac. You should see a router address there. If you don't it means you are not communicating with the router for some reason.
