The password it is asking for is probably the administrator password. If there is someone else that uses the computer also they may be set as the administrator and you probably have a normal user account.
YOu need to get the administrator password before you can install the printer. If this seems to be a normal problem for you then you should have yourself set as an administrator(control panel>user accounts))
Let me know if this helps with your problem and thanks for using FIxYa

I have a d-link DI-524 i am trying to connect a new laptop to the router but it asks for passwords which i don't have i reset the router and went through the install processbut when i type the 19216801...


Hey man.

First we need to find the correct ipaddress of the device.

press start -> run -> ipconfig

you should see something like this:
Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : saunalahti.fi
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::8c84:e222:b747:1969%8
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.1


Note the default gateway is the address of the device so

now open up your browser and type: HTTP://192.168.11.1
Remember to replace that ip with yours! that is how I would connect to mine :)

Then the login screen should come up. I havent looked in your manual yet but if its nesasery il look up the default passwords for you but.

You can try the following:
User: Password:
Admin 1234
root 1234
root
root 0000

commend if you need more help.

Why is my dell dimension 3000 with xp keeps getting file download- security warning for everything I try to open? Even opening the internet icon on my computer


I see XP, sorry ok here's your fix...
Because a firewall restricts communication between your computer and the Internet, you might need to adjust settings for some programs that prefer an open connection. These adjustments are called "exceptions." To learn more about exceptions, see the Using the Exceptions Tab section of this article.
Windows Firewall now has three settings: On, On with no exceptions, and Off.
On: Windows Firewall is turned on by default, and normally you should leave it that way. When you choose this setting, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, except for requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab.
On with no exceptions: When you select the Don't allow exceptions check box, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, including requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, such as when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a dangerous virus or worm is spreading over the Internet.
Tip There is no need to keep Don't allow exceptions selected all the time, because when it is, some of your programs might not work correctly, and the following services are blocked from accepting unsolicited requests:
• File and Printer Sharing
• Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
• Discovery of network devices
• Preconfigured programs and services on the exceptions list
• Additional items that you've added to the exceptions list

Note When you select Don't allow exceptions, you can still send and receive e-mail, use an instant messaging program, or view most Web pages.
Off: This setting turns Windows Firewall off. When you choose this setting, your computer is much more vulnerable to harm from unknown intruders or viruses from the Internet. This setting should only be used by advanced users for computer administration purposes, or if your computer is protected by another firewall.
To adjust Windows Firewall settings
1.
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
2.
In the control panel, click Windows Security Center.
3.
Click Windows Firewall.
4.
In the General Tab make your selection.

Windows Firewall General tab
Note Settings that you create when your computer is joined to a domain are stored separately from those created when your computer is not joined to a domain. These separate groups of settings are called profiles.

If the above does not work you may also need to adjust your internet security settings. You can do this by the following:
Open up your internet explorer
click on tools
select internet options
click on the security tab
change the sttings to medium, rather than what they are. Click apply and ok. Exit your browser and restart it to try to connect again. Let me know if the above options do not work and we will try the next step. Hope this helps!

I have a T3516 desktop e machine. The problem i am having is i use to have a hp printer hooked up to it, i have unistalled it and am trying to install a new hp printer and it won't let me it keeps saying...


You may have tried this already but if not-
- Turn off your PC - If not already connected, connect the printer and turn it on. - Finally turn on the PC and watch for a message from Windows stating "Found new device."
If all is working properly, Win should at least install a basic driver or if it finds none compatible, it will ask to insert the installation disk.
Good luck-

How to set up password for the router


Hi,

You should connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cord.

1.Click on Start - accessories - command prompt.

2. On the command prompt, type ipconfig look for the default gateway. Take note of the number found in default gateway.

3. Open Internet Explorer then type the number from the default gateway in the address bar.

A window will pop up and will ask for he username and password. By default, username: admin sometimes they leave it as blank and the password: password sometimes it uses admin as the password.

Keep me posted.

Trying to password protect my wireless internet with Netgear router and it is now telling me I have limited access when I try to connect to the internet with my laptop


Hi,
If you have password protected your router,and after the same its giving you a limited access, you need to delete the existing wireless connection and create a new one. When you are configuring the new connection it would ask you the password that you have given , the box where you need to put it in is called the Network key box. You can call netgear support and they can walk you through it aswelll.


Thanks

Hi i have the linksys model wub54g router an adapter i would like to put a password on t stop other uses on my internet


U don't need a password. U need to set U'r router to a secure mode, not open ended. use WEP or other (64 bit or 128 bit) encryption. linksys allows U to select a paraphrase, example: "Love2Air" and it will generate a code, i.e. "7D23C678867". This will allow others to see that there is a wireless system, but they have to have the code to use it. U will have to have the code in your other wireless pc's in order to use the system. U can also tell the router what MAC address' (pc address') to allow or disallow to use the system.
A password is used to keep others out of U'r routers setup and changing U'r code or paraphrase. If U'r system gets highjacked, there is a reset on the router and everything will revert to the book defaults. Don't loose the book.
