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", then "".  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.
