10.0.0.1 is the router? 10.0.0.2 the eth0 interface?

So - you have managed to contact the router. Good.
The web interfaces for routers differ but in general you have to give a

The default password should be in the documentation. It is generally
something simple like 'adsl' or 'Mentor'. I suspect you'll be unable to
progress further without it.
