Open a command prompt (windows key + r, type cmd then press return)
Type in ipconfig
The default gateway IP is a likely candidate of your router
If you get the right page you'll be prompted to enter a user name and password.

For the routers user name and password you can find out what it is by searching for the brand and model number, but usually for all routers user name and password will both be admin or administrator, or simply the user name will be admin and the password will be left blank.
