Indeed. I was just trying to help, over the phone, a Windows user set
up a new router, in the absence of a manual. I told her "go to
192.168.0.1", then "192.168.1.1". Nothing doing. Finally, I searched
online for the manual, which gave the address as "routerlogin.net" or
something like that. I still have no idea what the IP address is.
