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 or, other 
bands can be utterly different - for instance Alctel use !).

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

You will eventually see something like:

Interesting ports on
Not shown: 998 closed ports
80/tcp  open  http
443/tcp open  https

Which, in this case is my DSL router.
