No secured networklink possible. cannot login ip address router with admin / admin. what to o.


We are here to help you out.

ON the back of that router there is a small hole labeled RESET you need a small paper clip, your going to poke the paper clip into that hole and hold while the power is on for 15 seconds then your going to release that!

your settings in that router should be RESET! Thus the user name and password should work. you might want to try other combinations like

Admin then press enter on the password leaving the password Field blank. After resetting this and the default passwords do not work then would you call this router a brick!

If you have any additional questions or any other information please reply to me.

Thanks and I hope this was Very Helpful advice for you.

My dog ate the instruction book for the intec wave plus for wii. I don't know how to sync back to the wii.

The Wii console has a small door in the front of it that covers the slot for a mini SD card and the red "Sync" button. With the Wave battery in the Wii remote you cannot push the corresponding "sync" button on the remote with your finger but there is a small hole that you can poke something thin like a paper clip through to push the button.
Push the red button on the Wii console and use a paper clip to push the button on the Wii remote. Both buttons do not have to be pushed at exactly the same time, there can be a few seconds delay.(This may take a few tries as the "sync" button is a bit hard to hit on the remote though the small hole.) All four lights on the remote should blink a few times then only the first light to the left will stay solid indicating that the remote is synced. If the lights blink and then all turn off, try to sync again.

Cd is stuck in my dell studio 1555 laptop?can you help? ram

Look closely at the bezel of the disk drive, you should see a small hole.

Straighten out a paper clip and push it, quite firmly into the hole. This is the failsafe release.

Im trying to get it back to factory settings so I can access it using the IP address and I can't for some reason

Look for a small opening on the back panel, the size to let an unbent paper clip fit inside. Poke the end of the paper clip in and hold it in for maybe 5 seconds. This performs a hard reset on the router, forcing it back to Factory settings. You can access it via and redo settings.

Dvd player door is locked and we cannot eject the dvd?

Get a small paper clip.

There should be a little hole on the DVD tray bezel or possibly around the edge. If you put the paper clip into the hole and poke around, it will partially release the tray and you should be able to gently pull the tray open.

CD/Rom external drive door will not open. How can I fix it?

If you examine the face of the tray, you should find a very small hole, about the exact diameter of a standard paper clip. (See where this is going? ;-) )
Some need to have the clip unfolded twice since the manual release is pretty far inside and you may have to blindly poke around (try straight in first, of course) before you find the right spot. Once you find it, it will require a good push to get the tray lip to come out.
I have two that do this and am too lazy to take them out and correct the problem since they do sometimes come out on their own. The weak point is kind of a clutch that is supposed to slip if something is blocking its movement and unfortunately, probably because of dust, they lose their grip and slip when they shouldn't.
