Router's IP Address/Connect to Router


As you may notice by my conversation title, I'm a complete newbie to Cisco. All I really need to know is how can I determine the IP address for my 2600 series Router? I have no idea how to communicate with it. I'm not familiar with any software related GUI's for configurations (if any exists).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Router's IP Address/Connect to Router

Do you know the hostname for it?

Do you have physical access to it?

Re: Router's IP Address/Connect to Router

I don't have the hostname either. I do however have access to it.

I read about connecting to it via a com serial port, and then hyperterminal to it, but the device only has RJ(45?) input/outputs. I'm guessing I'll end up telnet to it, but without an IP or hostname, it's kinda difficult, right?

I thought about using 'ping -a 192.168.1.x' and just repeating that for the last octect until I saw a hostname that might resemble the router, but that hasn't worked yet.
