Forgot admin password cannot how to reset admin password gateway lt2104u


Look on Ebay for a password reset disk. Many vendors on Ebay sell a bootable "linux" disk that you boot from and then you can edit your password file on Windows. I have versions for XP/ Vista.Windows 7.

Be sure to get one that works for your version of windows. You must set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive first for this to work. About $5 to $10 for the reset disk.
Regards,
Dennis

When i put in default username and password says its not authorized


Try admin in user anme and admin in password.
If that doesn't work then try admin in only password, leave the user name blank.
If that doesn't work then try some different passwords that you use often.
If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router.
Once you reset the router, you will lose all the settings on the router and you will need to reconfigure it.

I forgot my paswordhow do i reset it


Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.

If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com
Resetting your router

If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.

hope this helps

I need to know how to get the administrative password for my acer aspire one mini laptop


Depending on the OS you can Ctrl + Alt + Delete and it would change to a screen that you can enter a user name and password.
Enter the username "Administrator" and leave the password blank or try "admin" or "administrator"
If your able to login with those details you can go to
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and groups (On the left) > Users > and then right click the username you forgot the password for and click "Set Password"

OR

Forgot user name and password


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.

NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).

Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.

Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

Windows 7

NOTE:
If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

The router's password can be changed by:



i. Running the router's setup CD. Click here to learn how to download firmware.
ii. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page. Click here to learn how to change password on the web-based setup page.

Unable to Access the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
Reset your router for 30 seconds. Try accessing again using the default IP address "192.168.1.1". If you are encountering problems accessing the router's web-based setup page, click here.

Cant login never had username or password if i did i forgot


Depending on which revision you have there are two possibilities

Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: password
or
Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: admin

If neither of these work - you may have setup a new username and password and forgot - on the router you will see a reset point - reset the router to factory defaults and the username and passwords above will now work.

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, thank you.

I cannot setup my WRT150-N router to work with my Wildblue Satellite Internet.


Access the router setup page by opening a browser and visiting http://192.168.1.1/. The default login and password for my new router was admin/admin. If that doesn’t work try logging in as admin without a password.
