Forgot the password


If you have forgotten the password and haven't set it, try using no password. The default password is blank and the default username is Admin. If this does not work and you have no way of guessing your password, you will need to reset your router. This should only be done if you know your broadband username and password as it will wipe to blank if you reset and you will need to type them in again.

Just as Tom Hanks said in the famous movie Forrest Gump, "Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get."

It moves up to the second place in the Microsoft's OS, with 14.46 percent of the global market last month compared to Vista's 14.43 percent.

As a common PC user, I don't know whether Windows 7 will surpass Windows XP, which still has a lion's share of users worldwide after released for 9 years. I also don't know when Windows 7 will pass Windows XP if it is able to overtake.

Hi I have the acer 5551 with windows 7 installed but I have forgot the password well I say forgot but I'm certain I'm typing the correct password but getting no where and all I can do is turn it on, is...


If you're certain that you have the password correct, then let it sit turned off for a little longer than an hour. As long as the password you're typing is correct, it should unlock after that. Of course, make sure the caps lock isn't on as well.
