I don't see any mention of it but I presume it has an ethernet RJ45 
socket and you have tried
connecting to it(the 'router') via that, you don't say what network app. 
you are using or
what OS either as far as I can read. If it will connect with 'loop-back' 
you should be able
to find it's local ip address fairly easily with 'less 
/etc/resolv.conf'  - nameserver.
