Well I haven't used Cain in quite some time now so I can't help you there, but you could always try John The Ripper or Brutus.

Which password? The WIFI pass? Like WEP/WPA etc...

Or the administration password to access it from the network?
The glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it's merely twice as big as it needs to be.

I would guess Administrator. I would use something like Brutus or Hydra (or any other brute-force tool) along with a possible dictionary attack against the router's web interface.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

Yup, must've misread that. You basically know your admin password is good enough against brute forcing if it's 10+ characters that include numbers and symbols.

try using this with target set to router ip or local host perhaps, can do a dictionary attack or a pure brute force in the order you dictate and can include special characters

"Localhost?" srslybro? You don't know what you're talking about.
