I'm using my laptop to get internet via wifi from a public network. I then connect my laptop's ethernet port to the uplink port of the router and set up the bridged connection in windows' ncpa.cpl (network connections).

Everything works and the router is able to route internet through to devices connect to it, and my own laptop can still go online by setting the ipv4 metric of the router to max so that my wifi can take control.

How do I connect to my router's admin page? The connection looks like this:

Internet --> Laptop --> Router --> Other devices

In addition, I would like to ssh into one of the devices connected to the router. I think as long as I can get the router IP, I should be able to figure out how to connect to these devices, but some information that would be great.

Thanks in advance.
