    How will I get to my Wifi router with knowing its IP address?


    If I change it from the default, 192.168.1.1 and then forget what it is, is there any way to find out? ANy hacker tools or somesuch? Is there a live CD for this, if so?


    Thanks.

    "route -n" - the router will show up as you gateway.

    Is this because the DHCP server ON the router will give itself out as the gateway at boot time?

    I would say it's by convention. You could configure it otherwise but for most of us the one device performs both duties so it's a default.
