Basic rule for protection of your password(s)

NEVER give anyone your password. If someone asks for username and password, they have no clue on what they are doing or they have bad intentions towards you or what ever your password is protecting.

wen i turn it on it is asking for password and i dont know it what do i do


Does it ask for a password Immediately when you turn it on? (CMOS password) or does windows boot up and then ask for both a username and password?

If the first, and you don't know what your password is, you can try clearing the CMOS by pulling the battery from the motherboard.

If it's a windows password, you or someone else created a password for it. Try just clicking OK, or enter Administrator as the username and leave password blank. Otherwise you may have to reset using ultimate boot CD.

Broadband Router is asking for username and password


If you haven't setup a username and password on this router before.

Then it's probably using the factory default username and password, for that visit the manufacturer's website.

If you have setup a username and password before on this router, but forgotten what the password is. Give the router a hard reset. How to do that can be found in the manual.

How do you access your router from your PC?


Belkin Routers can be accessed by typing the following IP address in the address bar of Internet Explorer: I will give you two alternatives as off the top of my head I cannot remember!! When you have typed in your IP address for the Router, you will then be asked for a username & password. Try these: Router IP 192.168.2.1 USERNAME admin Password password If the password does not work try admin or just leave it blank If this is not the right IP try 192.168.1.1 and follow the same Username/Password as suggested above. Hope this works for you.

administrator password


you cannot delete or alter the administator password, the only way to do this is to reformat and reinstal windows, but normally when you are asked for the administrator password, you just press enter, unless the password has actually been set when originally installed.
