Step 1:
The first thing you want to do is check to see if you can get into the computer the easy way. Try signing on as a guest. If there is no "guest" option try typing in: guest then press enter. If this fails, no need to worry, just move on to the next step. If this step fails then just Hit ctrl + alt + del. Under the username put the word "administrator" and put nothing under password. Most likely this will work, since there is a secret administrators account in every computer. If by any chance this does not work: continue to the next step... If you are on the computer already and need a way to access the computer in the future without knowing the password try this: Go to the start menu, then to "control panel", click on "user accounts"... Make another account with your own password to it! This way you can sign in with your own user name and there's no need in knowing the password. The downside to this though is that the computer often displays all usernames once you sign on. Restart the computer and find out, on some computers it doesn't! This last step is a bit drastic, but you can change the password on the computer given that you are already signed on. You don't have to know the password in order to change it.

What is the definition of Username? Is it my Email address?


Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. I am assuming you are asking this question in the terms of an operating system because it is in the operating systems section. In the case of OSs, the username is not your email adress, but usually you don't need to type in your username. For websites, it differs. Some use your email as your username, some use a unique username, and some use both.

I have a nieghbor who has somehow found out my password. How can I change my password so he can't use it anymore.


you can change your wireless encryption password by going to internet explorer
http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1
the default login/pass
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
if this does not work you will need to reset your router by holding the reset button for 30 seconds or more when you power it on.
  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin;password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.

    For Steps 4-9, refer to Figure A below.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  5. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
  6. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  7. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into thePassphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  8. Click Apply to save the settings.

I am trying to connect another computer to my wireless network but i do not know my netgear code, where do i find this?


Netgear code? Can you be more specific?

Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".

  1. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  2. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  3. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  4. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
  5. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  6. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.

Need to move contacts in Palm Desktop to new user name


On your Palm Desktop, under username PalmUser40, select the category view of 'All'.  Then press Control + A to select all contacts. Then press Control + C to copy them all.
Then change the username on the upper right to 'misty'.  Then go to contacts, under category 'All', and then Control + P to paste all contacts. 
This will most likely not keep all the category names, but all your contacts will be copied in.
Then hotsync to sync to your Palm TX.
