Try hitting control alt f2 to get to a linux prompt, then enter passwd to change the password.
Also I found that if I got on the network with an ethernet connection first then I could get my wifi working in my house. You may also want to learn the bash shell commands for future maintenance on this computer.
A little candle icon appears in upper right corner when its connected when its connected.
Good Luck

    Also these minis ship with ubuntu linux. It is a debian version of linux and it has a software loading package called aptitude. You can use the command apt-get install from the command prompt to get new software on the mini. There are books on ubuntu also.

Hi there!

go to Start > control panel and click on "User Accounts"... click on your user name and on top you will see "Change Password". Click and supply for the necessary password. I recommend using special characters on your password like "p@assword"

hope this helps
