Wireless incorrect Password


Make sure the password and connection name are the same as the ones in your wireless router.
Be aware you need to put the correct password in for every wireless connection you want to use at least once. The device will remember the password for the next time it needs to login.

Using Password Phrases For Better Security


Did you know that Windows supports using passwords of up to 127 characters? I don’t use passwords anymore, and I haven’t for years. I’ve switched to using password phrases instead.
Why do I use password phrases?
  • Why would you want to remember a password like 2%d7as$d when you could just remember a sentence like “nsync sucks giant monkey balls” or “I hate my ex-wife!” or “Holy hell does this job ****!”
  • You can use uppercase, lowercase, special characters, or even spaces… but you are using them in context, which makes it much more natural to remember.
  • Post-it notes on your monitor are not secure. Sorry.
  • Even the most efficient forms of password cracking, using pre-computed rainbow tables, will never be able to crack a password with 20 or more characters.
These days, windows passwords can be cracked in no more than a few seconds. If somebody can get physical access to your machine, they can boot off one of the hacker tool cds available all over the internet, and they will typically have your password in seconds, if they know what they are doing.
Even with brute force cracking, there is no possible way that you can crack a password that long. Even if somebody had the super computing power to do so, hopefully you change your password every few months or so.
It may be difficult to use password phrases on other operating systems, or especially on websites, because they don’t properly handle spaces in the password, or have a small password length limit. One of the tricks that I usually do is use a password phrase without the spaces, if I possibly can.
So go change your password now

How do i reset my password on my modem? I haven't used it for about a year and a half and i can't remember the password... please help, it is a Belkin G Wireless Router


Thanks for the info.
That's quite a problem huh!
There is no such things you can change your password in your modem if you didn't remember it. But i do have one solution.
First, you must have to reset the modem to its default value. the default password there is "admin" without a quote. That, if your willing to reset your modem.
If you want to reset, then you must find the small button at the back of your modem, just press it for 10 seconds. But if you dont remember the IP address, then try this default Ip address: 192.168.1.1 192.168.0.1 192.168.1.0
Access your modem using this Ip address.
hope it helps.
Thanks
