Forgot my password and would like you help me find it


Graham, no one in the world can retrieve your pass word, if you can't. That is why they invented the pass word security.
The only way to find it, is to write down all passwords you ever used and still can remember. Perhaps you did forgot a capital while using the last one.
If you have problems accessing an internet account, and you did set it up correct, you did give the provider of that site a mailers where he can send a reset code.
Not giving more clues, I have to do some assumptions. Anyway, check the login page carefully and check for buttons like problem logging in. or forgot password and press that one.
If your account is hacked and the person who did that, was quick enough, he perhaps did change the return mail address and then you have lost the account forever.
Although even Facebook will if asked send a reset code to an old mail address if you have a quick response.
Don't use the same password twice and change passwords regularly.

Got a new sim but still saying enter sim password and i have forgotten my password what can i do


Hello of course generally it will ask you to enter the sim security code.Because you have set the sim security enabled with the previously with the old sim.Anyway enter 0000 for once,if you enter wrong pin repeatedly again it will ask you to enter PUK,so to avoid this if you don't make sure the security code the best way is to contact mobile repairing shop before you insert the new sim card.There they can generate/reset the code with the help of repairing tools.Good luck

Password Issue


Usually after the installation of a system on a mac you will get the welcome screen coming up and you need to enter details such as name address email and your login details such as a user name and a password. If you can't remember the password or you did not fill in a password, all you have to do is boot up with your system disk (holding down the c key) when the instal screen comes up go up to the menus and find the one that says reset your password. You will not be asked for your current password so enter a new password and it will ask you to repeat the password. Once done restart. You will of course be asked for your password when you try and install software but this is a security protocol to stop unauthorised software from installing on your machine without your knowledge. Hope this helps.

What is a security key


WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is an advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). While connecting to a home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key or a password to which users often ask, "How Do I Find My Computer's WPA Key?" WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over(Wired Equivalent Privacy) Wep is standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.
While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:
How to find your computer's WPA key Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.
Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.
To Reset a modem/router, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.
Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.
Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.
On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.
If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long. For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN\/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBD\m+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGI\RVz4RdQ7V3y\l$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.
Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

Hi there,
This seems to be a problem with your wireless router. Check to make sure you put in the proper WEP/WPA Security Code. If you aren't sure what I'm talking about...

Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.
Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.
To reset a Linksys modem/router or Belkin one, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.
Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.
Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.
On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.
If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long. For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN\/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBD\m+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGI\RVz4RdQ7V3y\l$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.

How can i get my password to my router


Try those passwords: MiniAP or admin

Check also the default passwords at this web site:
http://artofhacking.com/etc/passwd-belkin.htm
Although they are not for this specific model, manufacturers usually repeat themselves when using default usernames/passwords.

I keep asking them to reset my password, email me the new one but


ou can contact Facebook by email atinfo@facebook.com, explain your situation, and hope for the best. Your Facebook profile does have a security question, so I recommend that you include that question and answer when you grovel. But with millions of members, I would not expect a speedy response. I'd even suggest that you repeat your request if you haven't heard back in a day or two.
