Have you tried resetting the router. There is normally a tiny hole into which you have to push a paperclip or something similar. This takes it back to factory settings. You will then need to treat it as a new unit and follow original instructions for installation.

Boot password


If you forgot your BIOS password. see this... http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
If you forgot your windows Account Login password, the following page is a good description of your choices... http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/tp/find-lost-windows-passwords.htm
Also, check out... http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
If the above does not work, and you have important files that you don't want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. At least you may not lose you files.

Computer system locked and dont remember password


I hope you forgot the password for your Operating System Log On. If you forgot your boot password of your bios, then this may not be as helpful.
For password problems in windows or in any Operating System, I prefer you to use http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ ,a free Windows password cracker based on rainbow tables. It is a very efficient implementation of rainbow tables done by the inventors of the method. It comes with a Graphical User Interface and runs on multiple platforms. It is very simple and easy to use.
Also, read how to crack or how to use ophcrack to recover your windows password, visit http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ophcrack/index.php?title=Ophcrack_Howto
Hope this will help you.

We just got wireless internet this past year at our house and when my dad set it up he forgot to write down the password which lets you onto the internet. So now we are able to log on through the computer...


to set the wireless settings you need to use a computer that is connected to your router or the computer that is working on your router wirelessly.

access the setup page of your router using IE on the address bar type the ip of your router, by default it is 192.168.1.1, username=admin and password=password, once your on the setuppage go to wireless settings option on the left pane. you will be able to see the wireless security there.


the reason why you dont know the wireless security for the old computers its because once you typed the security key in the computer will remembers it and save it on the system.
