    You may need to be connected via Ethernet cable to the Router. Look in Finder, Applications, Utilities for the Terminal app. If you type ipconfig you will get some choices, in this respect Mac is not as easy as Windows. I only use my MacBook Pro with Wi-Fi so don't recall all of it.

    Your Mac as in a Apple Macbook? The router IP is what the mfg would have defaulted it to. Has zero to do with what brand of computer or what Operating System you are using. Not really that hard to figure out if you read the instructions for your Gateway or just do a search for brand and model.

    Actually they would only need to connect and then the Thunderbolt connection would connect them to the Gateway and all of the network info would be under Network Preferences, or just hold down the option key on the keyboard and click on the icon for the network adapter.

    That would be nice IF my MacBook Pro had Thunderbolt on it.

    Most routers use one of four following:

    192.168.0.1

    192.168.1.1

    192.168.0.254

    192.168.1.254

    Worth just entering those in turn in a browser to see if it connects.

    Most routers have a URL you can enter as well, often on a label on bottom of router.

    It works the same way with Wireless. All Macbooks have Thunderbolt.

    Mine says I don't have it even though the app is there. Not a problem as I wouldn't need it anyway. But then mine is from mid-2010.

    The 2010's were the last having Firewire in them if I recall, before Thunderbolt took over. It is a one port does all, since it can also be used for external monitors, etc..
