drjersey, I do believe you to be confused by the term "router". This is a woodworking router forum, not an internet router forum. There may very well be someone here who can help you, but this forum is loaded with woodworking experts and enthusiasts, not IT experts. Best of luck.

1. Press the reset button to restore factory defaults.
2. Find the mac address - if it's been removed, connect it to your computer ethernet input and use this website: Find mac address.
3. Now use this website to lookup the manufacturer: Find Manf from mac address
