Get router IP on Windows OS

Explain the problem

The user needs to download the router server from a browser but the IP of the router is not known.

Solution

In Windows it is rather simple to find out the router IP address. Please note that if you have modems and routers on your network the method we describe will only show you the IP address of one of them.
