Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You - or better still - they need to reset their router to factory settings by pressing in the recessed button. Don't do that without finding out if there is ISP login data in there which would need to be rewritten - they may not know that information so if you reset it and it fails completely, they'll know what you've done.
