To find a user manual go here.

The default login for your router you can find here.

The default address is 192.168.1.1, but you did not mention which router model you have. So go to the first link and download the manual for your specific router. All information should be in there.

How to hook up and setup for best performance on my network


Basically on the router's settings you have to make its connection on the internet and enable the wireless port ..and select the security for it ..
To get to th settings you have to connect teh router with the internet cable in the separate port (called internet ) ..and one of the computer in the first wired port ..
on the LAN card of the computer select under the tcp/ip protocol to assign an automatic ip address ..and it will be connected with the router ..for the moment ..
In the browser of this computer ..type http://and the IP address of the router ..(it is written on the back on that sticker ...usually is something like 192.168.1.1. or so ..
once you have typed this in the browser and hit Ok (enter) ..will show you the log in for router's settings ..type in the word admin for each ..and see if it lets you in the settings ..if not ..take a look in the manual and see teh correct user and password..for this model ..
Than once inside ..first thing to do is select the DHCP...basically same way as you used to configure for the tcp/ip in the computer ..If your provider uses the automatic ip address assigning ..select the same here ..and leave them blank ..It will take the ip addresses and the server (dns) from the modem ..
if you have a static Ip connection type ..select static ip ..and insert the ip address and the subnet mask and default gateway ..and the dns servers ..just like the ones from your isp ..
click on the save ..and it will have the connection to the internet ..
if you have your mack address on the isp ..it may not let you connect with the mac address of the router ..so its best to use for settings the same pc you used on the isp ..as admin ..and just under mac address select clone mac..this way your have no issues with this ..
After this were done ..select the range of Ip addresses that your router will assign ..(usually 100 up from the router Ip ..ex from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.100 ..This setting is made automatically usually ..and these will be the range for teh ip-es for your computers when they will be connected wired..
Last ..select the wireless..enable it ..select the band..(automatic is best if you do not know what you are doing ) ..and than under select wep security ..if you want to insert a password..enable the security ..and click one password instance ..and select one ...as is instructed..and save //
This will be the one used for wireless connection ..You may leave it without password and just enable and select the band...cause you already have enough wireless connections and it may get tricky to use..
let me know if you don't understand something from these ..
For each step ..you have additional info in the manual ...and I believe once you understand the general way ..you will understand what they are talking about ..
Please do not forget to rat e or give testimonial if this helps ...have a nice day !

I cannot log into facebook


Facebook has become a daily or near-daily habit for many people all over the world: People spend more than 700 billion minutes every month on the site, talking to friends, playing games and sharing information. While signing up with Facebook is simple, sometimes accessing an existing account can prove to be problematic. This can occur for a variety of reasons.
1.Incorrect Password
Facebook users who attempt to log into the site with an incorrect password will not be able to access their account until they go through the password recovery process. Users can recover their Facebook password by clicking the "Forgot Your Password?" link underneath the password login field. Users must enter their Facebook email address, linked mobile phone number, Facebook username, or their name and a friend's name. Following information entry, users can click the "Search" button to identify their account and have the password reset to a new password of the user's choice.
2.Incorrect or Forgotten Email
Facebook users who provide an incorrect email address will be unable to log into the site. Since an email address must be entered exactly as it appears on the email account, including any capital or lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols, an incorrect email login may be as simple as an accidental lowercase letter or a forgotten underscore. Facebook users should check their email address to ensure that no mistakes of this nature have occurred before login.
If a user has forgotten the email address used for their Facebook account, Facebook suggests the following options for email address recovery: Try to log in with a username if one was registered, try to log in using a mobile phone number if one is linked to the account, try locating the account on the "Password Reset" page, or ask a Facebook friend to view the account and find the email address listed on the profile. If none of these options work, Facebook suggests using any option on the "Recover Your Account" page.
3.Cache Or Cookies Problems
Facebook users who are unable to log in may be having a cache or cookies problem. To fix these type issues, users should clear the cache and cookies on the computer or mobile device, enter "m.facebook.com" as a URL rather than using previously established bookmarks or links, then log in as usual.
4.Account Disabled by Facebook
Facebook seeks to keep its site populated with real people, rather than fake profiles. As Facebook states, "Since accounts that impersonate anyone or anything can damage the integrity of this environment, Facebook doesn't allow fake profiles for celebrities, pets, ideas or inanimate objects." If your profile is deemed to be a potential fake profile, the account may be disabled by Facebook. When this occurs, the user will get a message upon attempted login that provides a link to the "Confirm Your Identity" page. This page provides possible reasons that the account may have been disabled. In some cases, it is due to the user not confirming an identity via a phone number.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Forget password


To change password of an user account, we need to go to User Accounts panel in Control Panel, choose the user account, click on 'Change my password' link, type current password once and new password twice. Too lengthy a process isn't it? Here is handy tip to change Win XP passwords in DOS mode and believe me, it takes less than 5 seconds!! Let me share the hack with you all!
net-user-pwd.gif Steps to change password
  1. Click on 'Start' and then on 'Run...'.
  2. Type 'cmd' (opens up the command prompt).
  3. Now type net user * (do not omit the spaces)
  4. You will get a prompt like .. Type a password for the user:
  5. Type the desired password and press Enter key. Also note that you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
  6. You will again get a prompt like .. Retype the password to confirm:
  7. Retype the password and press Enter key. Here too you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
Thats it!!! Oh no .. wait .. Did it cost you more than 5 secs? OK Try this ..


Another Solution

Computer passwords are like locks on doors - they keep honest people honest. If someone wishes to gain access to your laptop or computer, a simple login password will not stop them. Most computer users do not realize how simple it is to access the login password for a computer, and end up leaving vulnerable data on their computer, unencrypted and easy to access.
Are you curious how easy it is for someone to gain access to your computer? If so, read on to see the technique one might use to figure out your computer password.
Windows
Windows is still the most popular operating system, and the method used to discover the login password is the easiest. The program used is called Ophcrack, and it is free. Ophcrack is based on Slackware, and uses rainbow tables to solve passwords up to 14 characters in length. The time required to solve a password? Generally 10 seconds. The expertise needed? None.
3237188885_1527db4c72_m.jpgSimply download the Ophcrack ISO and burn it to a CD (or load it onto a USB drive via UNetbootin). Insert the CD into a machine you would like to gain access to, then press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Turn the computer back on and enter BIOS at startup. Change the boot sequence to CD before HDD, then save and exit.
The computer will restart and Ophcrack will be loaded. Sit back and watch as it does all the work for your. Write down the password it gives you, remove the disc, restart the computer, and log in as if it were you own machine.
Mac
The second most popular operating system, OS X is no safer when it comes to password cracking then Windows.
The easiest method would be to use Ophcrack on this, also, as it works with Mac and Linux in addition to Windows. However, there are other methods that can be used, as demonstrated below.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.4, then you only need the installation CD. Insert it into the computer, reboot. When it starts up, select UTILITIES > RESET PASSWORD. Choose a new password and then use that to log in.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.5, restart the computer and press COMMAND + S. When at the prompt, type:
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
dscl . -passwd /Users/UserName newpassword
That's it. Now that the password is reset, you can login.
Linux
Finally, there is Linux, an operating system quickly gaining popularity in mainstream, but not so common you're likely to come across it. Though Mac and Linux are both based on Unix, it is easier to change the password in Linux than it is OS X.
To change the password, turn on the computer and press the ESC key when GRUB appears. Scroll down and highlight 'Recovery Mode' and press the 'B' key; this will cause you to enter 'Single User Mode'.
You're now at the prompt, and logged in as 'root' by default. Type 'passwd' and then choose a new password. This will change the root password to whatever you enter. If you're interested in only gaining access to a single account on the system, however, then type 'passwd username' replacing 'username' with the login name for the account you would like to alter the password for.
Conclusion
There you have it - that is how simple it is for someone to hack your password. It requires no technical skills, no laborious tasks, only simple words or programs. The moral of the story? Encrypt your data to keep it safe. Don't use only a password, but actually encryption, such as Blowfish or AES-128. There are a number of programs that can do this - TrueCrypt for Windows, or the native encryption found on Ubuntu, creating a disk image in Mac, etc.

Can't log-in in mac os x


I'm assuming that you have forgotten your password, if so, here is what you need to do.
1. With the unit turned off, press the power button to power-on the mac, but also hold down the "CMD" and "C" keys on the keyboard at the same time. This will tell the Mac that you want to boot into SINGLE USER MODE.
2. Mac OS will now boot into a unix command line shell. From here you only need to remember your username and then type in the following command-line statements.
sh /etc/rc passwd USERNAME reboot
In this instance, USERNAME is the username that you normally login as. The "passwd" command will prompt you to enter a new password for the user called USERNAME.
WARNING: Changing your password this way will wipe out any and all keychain passwords associated with your user account. This is a pain, but better than not logging into the box.

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

Internet connection


ok, well give this a shot then. But is it possible that the other computer is connected to a network called Belkin?

It is also possible that MAC address filtering is turned on on the router so it will not let your computer connect. if it is, you will have to add your mac address (00-1A-73-DE-12-D5) to the approved list of MACs.

Anyway, you can try manually setting your IP address.
and see if that gets you on. If it doesn't, and MAC address control isn't the problem, then either you have a driver problem or your laptop and wireless router hate each other desparately.
  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Select Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Manage network connections from the list of tasks.
  3. Right click your local area connection and click Properties.
  4. Select ipv4 Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) from the list and click the Properties button.
  5. Select Use the following IP address.
IP address - 192.168.2.199
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.2.1
DNS Server - 192.168.2.1

This will force you computer to get network settings that match the netowrk. But beware, this will affect you if you try to go another network. You will then have to switch back to automatic configuration. but if you set up these settings and still can't get on, there is something wrong with the driver configuration. But make sure that there isn't another network called belkin.

If the manual configuration doesn't work, try updating the wireless driver from the manufacturer's website. Also try connecting to a wireless hotspot somewhere else and see if it is a computer problem or a problem with this specific wireless network.

Post back if you need anything further, I'll hang in with ya as long as I can.

Xbox live dont work please help


the reason for this part to fail differs along with the difference of the type of connection you are using to connect your Xbox 360 console as follows:

a. Direct connection to modem:

1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live". 3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Edit Settings” then “Additional Settings” tab then select “Advanced settings” & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the “Alternate MAC Address” part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you’ll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.

File sharing between windows 2000 and XP


1) I believe that Windows XP is not setup for that by default,
you may need to install the old BETBUI service.

2) Also, if the 2000 machine has a login password installed,
it will NOT allow any other machine to browse it, without
logging in.

3) Password-less file sharing over NETBUI was available
on the consumer side of windows:

Windows 3.11 for Work groups
Windows 95, 98 and Millenium.

The professional versions of windows, built on NT
technology require a login:

Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
and now Vista.

4) The best work around is to login to the 2000 machine when
it prompts you for a password, using your regular USER ID
and PASSWORD.

If the 2000 machine is not setup with a secure login,
just create a new account, ranking power user or higher.

5) Note that you only need to login over the network ONCE,
because windows XP can REMEMBER your password,
and login automatically the next time.

6) Make sure that the firewall (or A firewall) is not
blocking access to either machine, just disable the
firewalls for testing.

Similarly, if your LAN is behind a residential router, using
the router as a smart hub or switch, make sure that
the routers MAC address access blocking is disabled,
until you get everything setup and tested.

7) Finally if a PC is not visible in a work group, this does not
mean that it is not accessible. This is a Windows quirk.

You can try to access another computer by using the
default/administrative shares. These shares cannot be
disabled in XP, at least they will not stay disabled, as
they will restart during every reboot, whether you like it
or not.

This means that you can ALWAYS access all the drives
on another machine, whether you share them or not, unless
you take extreme measures in the local policies.

To access drive "E:" on a computer called "Henry" on a
machine in the same work-group,

open up windows explorer, and tyr the following into the
address line:

\\Henry\E$

This should access drive E:, after some delay, and possibly
a login prompt, even though drive is is NOT marked as
shared.

Down you just love windows ?!
Security by obscurity ?!
Microsoft is getting very good at hanging massive steel doors
on paper walls.

Hope this solves your problem, or gets around it.
