I have forgotten my email address how do I find it


Important information can sometimes be sent to an old email address that you no longer use.

For instance, if you registered a domain name, a website hosting account, a PayPal, or eBay account with an old email address but forgot to update your account when you switched email providers, then messages sent by those sites will be overlooked.

Finding old email accounts is not that difficult, especially because email users tend to use the same user name, or variations of it, for all email accounts.

If you know, or have an idea of what the old user name was, then retrieving, or changing the password is simple, but each email server uses a different user name or password retrieval method.

Call your internet provider and tell them you have forgotten your email account.

Give them your name and account number, found on your monthly statement.
In some cases the Internet provider will want to email this information to you.

Be sure they send the information to the alternate email address which you can access.
You don't want them to send messages to the email address you can't currently access.

The internet provider will ask you the security question you selected when signing up for the account.

If you can't remember what you selected, then the customer service representative may ask for a user name, your address, or the telephone number under which you registered the account.

Reset the password with the customer service representative over the phone.
The representative will help you change the user name if needed and reset the password so you can access the account again.
Yahoo Email

Go to the Yahoo mail page which asks you for your Yahoo ID.

Click on "I can't access my account."

Make the appropriate selection from the choices.
If you choose "I can't remember my user ID" then Yahoo will have you answer the "secret questions" they asked when you signed up.

These questions will be something like: "What was your first car?" or "Who was your third grade teacher?" If you answer coincides with the answer you gave when you signed up for the account.

Yahoo will give you your user ID.

After recovering your user ID, click on "I can't access my account" again and select "I can't remember my password," then click next and you will be taken to a change password screen, where you can change your password.

Start using your old Yahoo email account.
MSN Hotmail Email

Go to the Hotmail, or the MSN ID page, where it asks for your user name and password
Enter your user ID.

Unfortunately, MSN requires you to remember the user ID.

Click on "I have forgotten password"

Choose whether you want your password mailed to you or changed.
Unless you have registered a secondary email, if you choose email then the password will be sent to the account you can't access.

If you want to change password then you will be asked the security questions you specified when you registered the account.

Questions are something similar to, "Mothers birth place?" You may also be asked for your zip code, or address.

Enter a new password.

Enter anew password when the MSN ID page loads again and access your old email account.
Gmail Email

Access the Gmail ID page and click on "I can't access my account."

Choose the appropriate selection from the page that loads.
Options include, "I have forgotten my password" and "I have forgotten my user name."

If you select "I forgot user name," then click on "retrieve user name page," which you will see further down on the page.

Enter the alternate e-mail with which you registered the account.
The user name will be sent to that email.

Select "I have forgotten my password" If you know your user name then choose and click on "retrieve password" page.

Enter your user name on the page that comes up and then answer the confidential question that is asked.

Send password reset instructions to an alternate email and access your old Gmail email account.

Wish to change my password on the Belkin G Plus Nimo router and cannot remember where to go to get in and do it


1. Access the router's setup page by going to 192.168.2.1.
2. By default, there is no username and no password. Otherwise if you have created a password to access the router's page already then use that password.
3. If you want to change the administrative password of the router, go to "System Settings".
4. If you want to change the wireless security for your wireless connection, then go to wireless settings tab of the router.

How to protect my belkin 54g wireless connection from intruders. Please help me with that


There is no sure way to stop intruders - if they want to get in they can and will.

However in saying that you can certainly be smarter than the average jo driving around an estate looking for open wireless routers.

First thing first, always change the default password for the router (admin, password). If you can, change the username also (from admin to something else).

Secondly I would recommend that you enable some kind of WPA (or WEP) protection. This basically means that anyone attempting to connect to your wireless will require a "password" to connect to you. The more bits the password has the longer the password is and usally the harder it is to crack (via a brute force attack).

Thirdly - Hide your SSID. All routers by default show to the world they exist. If someone doesnt see it broadcasting generally they wont know its there.

Forthly. I would recommend setting up access lists. On every network card (be it wired or wireless) has a unique identifier called a MAC address. An access list restricts which MAC addresses can physically connect to your router. To find out your mac address click Start - Run. Type CMD. Type IPCONFIG /ALL

Fifthly - This may require a bit more fiddling around between both the router and PC's but may be worth it in the long run. Most routers broadcast whats called DHCP. This is what gives you an internal IP address. If your router allows you setup the DHCP settings to something incorrect EG: Different Subnet mask, DNS settings, Default Gateway. Then setup your home PC's manually to the correct settings. This way if someone does end up cracking your router it will throw another curveball at them as they will not be able to surf the net, view your shared files, without more fiddling.

As far as PC based security goes, I would suggest that you check any shared files or folders you may have and disable, setup how many people can use it at once, permissions etc for them. Best way to check would be Click Start - Run. Type \\127.1.1.0 <- This will connect to your pc via the network.
