You should be able to reset the router by either using the reset button usually located on the back of the router, or by unplugging it for about 30 seconds. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

When i go to pogo and try to sign in it wont let me saying my pass word is wrong. yet it's the only one I have ever


Your account has probably been hacked and the hacker changed your password. Try the "I forgot my password" link and it should ask you some security questions or send a temporary password to your email address you registered Pogo with, but hurry before time runs out and they may be able to change the registered email if you wait too long?
Let us know how it goes?
Thanks,

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.

I have a dell dimension E310 and wireless Internet set up in the house that I connect my iPhone to and Xbox, how do I connect my dell to it?


Locate the key on the wireless internet setup router, and be sure that your computer is using the same key, in order that it connect to the router properly.
Another suggestion is to use the MAC address - a unique to each piece of computer gear - and register the MAC Address from your Dell in the table of the router, such that no other computer, unless registered with the router in that way, can gain access to your WiFi.It is actually more secure than using encryption, since only one device can have a MAC address of each type. They are unique in all the computer world. Like a fingerprint.

Good luck.

Problem connectiong to DHCP server and acquiring a network address from router. using netgear router and linksys adapter. ICS


Hi There,

Your router, is it wireless?... anyway take a look at the security settings. I think that you have setup up your security setting with a wep key. If so than you need to enter a pass work into your computer to access the router for it to assign a IP address.

Let me know if you need more help.

Regards,

Philip

First take off WEP.
Next, ensure DHCP is enabled on router.
Don't set a manual IP address in computer, it should auto detect.
You probably have the WEP key wrong

Use the HEX WEP key in windows, do not use a pass phrase.
