If this is an XP computer, you should try to login as administrator first. It's very common for this password to be left blank. Just enter "administrator" as the user and press enter. Re-installing the OS can be very time consuming, so this may be worth trying first. See here for the procedure: To reset" the computer. You'll need the disks that came with the computer. Either recovery disks or an OS install disks. This procedure varies from computer to computer, so I can't tell you much with out the make and model info.

Login and password

The default login and password should be in your user manual. If you cannot find the manual, check the MFG website or Google your brand and default login. If you cannot access because of your own password and login, reset the router (manual or website should walk you through this) at which point it should reset login and password to default.

Where can I find the password/key for my netgear wireless router

Do you mean the key to log onto your wireless network? Plug a computer directly into the wireless router via the ethernet cable and go to or Internet Explorer. I believe one of those default address for netgear routers. Login to the router, the default login is login:admin password:password then select 'wireless settings' on the left and you should see the key.

If any of the default info has been changed and you cannot login, you will need to reset by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. But you will have to reconfigure the wireless network and reconnect all computers that were previously connected.

I got a new computer....cant remember my password to linksy and ofcourse have had linksy so long i no longer own the

These are instruction to Reset and Restore the “Router Password.”
The first thing you want to do is to “Reset” the Router’s configurations to factory defaults settings, hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href',''); }); Once your router resets, you will need to Login and reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your “Router” connect the Computer to one of the Ethernet Ports. Next, type in your Web Browser, and go to URL “You will be asks you to enter a “Username and Password to login to your router,” or use the router’s (“Default Password”) which is “admin.

“You should be able to reconfigure the “Router.” Next, go to the Management (Tab) to change the Administrator’s password.
Next, you will need setup the Security for the Router, by selecting to (“Enable”) the “Security Codes,” example: WEP “Rating the solution, if it helped? is appreciated, thanks”

Im the main person on computer the account in my name but i have forgotton password for the main page and can not get on to anything not even to resset a new password what do i do


I am not sure the OS installed on your notebook. Assuming it is XP OS, I am providing the steps.

If you have forget the login password of your account in XP then nothing to worry. There will be default account in XP called "Administartor"

By default there will be no password for this account. We can access this account from same mode.

To boot in safemode, restart the notebook and keep pressing the F8 key at BIOS logo screen.

Then it will give you the Advanced boot options. From those options, select "Safe Mode"

At Welcome screen you can see the Admistrator icon. Click on it to login. After booting into Safemode, open Control Panel, User Accounts and reset the password of your previous account.

Hope this works for you.
