Need help finding out my router's IP address for hosting games

When i have my internet connection set up like this:

Desktop PC -> Cable Internet Modem

I can see what my real IP address is and my friends can simply "direct connect" to my hosted games using that IP address.

However, currently my internet connection setup looks like this:

Desktop PC -> TPLINK Router -> Cable Internet Modem.

Unfortunately, i do not know how to see what the true IP address of my Router is - and without it, my friends are unable to join the games that i host.

Can someone please tell me how can i find out the real IP address of my Router, and not just the "fake" one that the Router assigns to my PC?

Log into the router control panel. It should be listed right on the front page somewhere.

And you have to get into the router settings anyway, to set up port forwarding to your game server.
