If you reset it you'll lose all settings. Press the reset
button on the back of the router until the power light
starts blinking orange, and wait until the power light
becomes green again.

I would first run IE and go to 192.168.2.1 -- this should
open the router configuration screen. If it does not work
run Command Prompt and enter ipconfig. If ipconfig returns
a 169... IP it means your computer did not connect to the
router -- try entering ipconfig /renew.

BTW, you may be able to download a PDF guide for the router
from circuitcity.com or other major stores -- lookup the
MN-700 and then look for the OEM manual in the page.
