Allow me an addition:
Some home routers with a web interface allow you to also
define fixed (local) addresses depending on the MAC address,
so the DHCP server will issue the same IP every time a
given device connects. However, not all routers support
that function - I have already met models where you can
select the local IP range (192.168.x.[y-z]), but you
cannot set fixed addresses...
Regarding the admin access: On some models, the factory
setting is printed on the back, or it comes with the docu-
mentation provided by the ISP which "normal people"
immediately throw away after receiving their new shiny
