There is a way of resetting the administrator password.
You need to use a so-called 'emergency boot cd' which uses a little piece of software to check and reset the password on the machine.

Two of those tools can be found here:
http://ebcd.pcministry.com/
and
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

give it a go.

If still unsuccessful, try contacting Acer for the Restore cd/dvd if you don't have it, and do a clean reinstall of the machine. Or use a Windows XP OEM disk of the same kind (Home/Professional) and use the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of the PC to do a clean reinstall. The last possibility doesn't install all drivers, so you'll have to download and install them from the Acer website. Don't forget: no drivers = no internet connection on the pc, so first of all download the drivers, put them on a USB stick or cd, and then reinstall the machine...

Dont remember password


password to your network?

well you can try accessing your router through your computer by plugging it in directly to your router with an ethernet cord. Once connected to your router. open a web browser and type in

192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1

one of the ip addresses should bring a dialog box up with a username and password field.

the user name can be

admin or user

password can be

admin or user or password.

try admin and admin first then admin and password then repeat with user.

once into your router you can go to wireless security settings and change your password in there.

What is the default ip and user name, password for this model ????


The "IP address" is your DEFAULT GATEWAY so you can try 192.168.1.1 or you have to check it by going to START>RUN and type CMD in the box and then Enter (brings you to the COMMAND PROMPT type IPCONFIG and enter you will see your DEFAULT GATEWAY.
For the user name and password (you didnt mention the model #) so for all US ROBOTICS the User names are (unless you changed it) try "root" "Any" "support" "Admin" and Passwords are (unless you changed it) "12345" " Admin" "support" "password". If you did change it and cant remember you can always press the reset button on the back and restore it to the "Out-Of-The-Box" settings.


If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

Router locked. Cant remember the password.. User "root"


Hi,
The only solution for u to login in to the router is to reset the router.

1.If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

2.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

3.Wait about 30 seconds to access the router.

4The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. When logging in, type in the default User Name “admin,” and the
default Password “admin” then click on the OK button to access the web-based manager.

Regards,
Ayyasam
