I was recently helping some of my family with a similar problem to this
(in their case they did not now the ip of their wireless AP, and needed
to get to to enable security!).
What I would do is firstly post the unedited output of 'ifconfig' and
'route' to this thread, so everyone knows what your workstation
networking looks like, then we know a bit more on how to help.
What I world recommend next to to reset your router, and do as others
have suggested - look online for what the default ip for your band and
model is (e.g Linksys is typically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.254, other
bands can be utterly different - for instance Alctel use 10.0.0.140 !).
Once you have some idea what p could or should be, install nmap, and
scan the entire ip range (e.g To find a Linksys router or AP):
$ nmap -T4 192.168.1.1-254
You will eventually see something like:
Interesting ports on 192.168.1.1:
Not shown: 998 closed ports
PORT STATE SERVICE
80/tcp open http
443/tcp open https
Which, in this case is my DSL router.
