Routers are usually delivered with standard logs and passwords. It is understood that the user will change them immediately after the connection. In fact, users almost never change them.So, get into the Router's building through the web interface. To this end, open the browser and put in the address line 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (if nothing happens, find instructions to your model of the Router).
There's got to be a window with plain and password fields, usually admin / admin, if not, look again. Frequently, factory logs and passwords can be found on the router's body.
