Forget Admin password in Windows 8


If you can sign into your Windows 8.1 using another admin account, you can also reset password to login Windows 8.1 free from the command prompt. Go back to Windows Password Recovery tool if you don't have another admin account. Press "Win Key+R" and type "cmd" in the "Run" command box and hit enter to open command prompt. Type the command "net user UserName NewPassword", in the command prompt and hit "Enter".. If you want to remove this password, just replace NewPassword with *.

Hello, Trying to get into the Config Software


Try the other common ones: 192.168.1.1, 192.168.100.1, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.10.1.

If those doesn't work, open a command prompt, and then type in ipconfig /all. Look for the value in the Default Gateway, and use that.
