D-Link WiFi Router Single Port Setup?

I have a D-link WBR-2310 Wireless router. I havn't used it in a while since I had AT&T modem that had wireless in it. But NOW that I switched to a different provider, I needed my Dlink to provide me the Wireless signal as my new modem from earthlink doesn't have any wireless capabilities. I used teh IP address on the back of it and tried to login with the login ID "admin" and no password, but that doesn't work. How do i get it to reset if there were any old passwords that i had on the Dlink, so I can set up the wireless.

D-Link WiFi Router Single Port Setup:

Get the IP range of the connection which you want to extend. (Connect to network in command prompt enter ipconfig /all. You will get the IP address and the connected default gateway).

To avoid IP conflict change the IP address of your WiFi router in the same range. Disable DHCP and NAT settings of WiFi Router. Connect the input to one of the LAN ports.
