    the router to log on to needs to be connected to your PC, ethernet or wireless.
    then find its IP address by starting a command prompt and typing IPCONFIG, its IP is the field called Default Gateway.
    enter that into a browser and you'll be in the router configuration menu.

    You can try this:

    http://192.168.0.1
    or
    http://192.168.1.1

    but it might be:
    http://192.168.0.254

    But my router is
    http://10.0.0.1

    The information is in the user manual.

    The comcast provided router they should be able to help you get into your router that they provided if your unable to figure it out. They might send a tech to your site to do this vs give password over phone.

    Bridging one router off of another via a hard wired or wireless connection bridge?

    If wireless bridge you can run into problems with two different routers. Bridging is best over wireless with two like model routers that were tested by manufacture to pair together and bridge.

    You will need the password and hard wired cat5 or cat6 cable connection to both routers to configure each one.

    Note: In my home I have 2 routers and I have a cat5e cable between them as the connection. The main router with wifi connects to broadband modem and then of the 4 ports available one of them runs 75 feet to another router with wifi and is plugged into the Internet Port. This is how I extended my wireless range by having 2 different wireless networks with all devices able to connect to one or the other depending on signal strength and both use different channels. Been running this way now for 5 years with no problems that way. I tried setting up a wireless bridge between my home and my barn with 50% signal strength and had all sorts of problems with mismatched brand routers. I then bought 2 of the same brand and was able to create a wireless bridge finally without problems to give internet to the barn where its partially finished with rooms with hard wired and wireless network as well.
