By default this router listens on 192.168.1.254.  You can reset it by holding the reset button for 10 seconds.

Create a new user from the user management and set up a new account.
after done, switch to that username by entering the username you created and password. initial password is the username you created.

Default admin username: Administrator  
Default admin password: <blank>  
Notes: Default password on some units may be "Administrator" instead of none.  

Here is a link that may help.

I was only recommending a reset if you didn't know the current password.  The default passwords should work for you to log into the system and create your new user account.
