steve: BTW: there are several sites out there that list the default IP address/admin names/passwords for huge numbers of wireless routers/access points.
Yes...knew of those but I couldn't get to the router's admin page at all. After doing a bit a research I discovered the rather simple reason...

You have to be directly connected to the router/cable box via ethernet cable to be able to access the admin page(s). This puzzled me until I realized that many of the admin options set/tweak the wireless network and you can't be connected wirelessly (which we were--on both laptops) to make those changes...'-}}

Sort of one of those demi-duh moments...'-}}
