Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

2 Answers

Admin login I am an undergrad at a college in ny. I need help to undo something that was done to a macbook. I don't remember how, but I changed the user login and password. My professor is attending a conference in LA and won't be back until after the thanksgiving break. My fellow lab rats either don't know or won't help. Any help would greatly appreciated. My e-mail is liquidsnakeny@netscape.net. I have all the original disks.

Creating a new Admin on Mac Os X:
Here's how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.
the Working solution for me was to create a new admin
you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.

You need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

1. Reboot
2. Hold apple + s down after you hear the chime.
3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
* mount -uw /
* rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
* shutdown -h now
4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you're good to go again!

Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.2.1

Buffalo - Username: root Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.11.1

D-Link - Username: admin Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.0.1

Encore - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

Linksys - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

NetGear - Username: admin Password: password Default IP address will be: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

TP-Link - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

TrendNet - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.10.1

Zhone - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

Zyxel - Username: admin Password: 1234 Default IP address 192.168.10.1

Need to set up my router (Belkin N Wireless Router) but cant find the disk that came with it. how do I go about getting it set up so I have wireless internet. Thanks for your help


1. Hold the reset button for 7 seconds when the router is powered to reset the router back to factory default.
2. Connect your computer to this router's ethernet port, type 192.168.2.1 on your browser's address bar then hit "enter".
3. You should see the Admin login page of this router, the default password is blank, it means you don't type anything onto the password field, just click "Login"
4. Make some necessary change, such as wireless keys, remember using WPA2 for security, not WEP.

Hope this help.

I have a dlink dl524 and trying to set security on it


Hi, I will lend a hand if I can.

Important Note! Use a wired connection to your router when setting up security.

There are four basic steps to setting up wireless security, which are the same for most routers:

1) Login to your router
2) Change the router login password/username
3) Change the network name, or SSID
4) Enable WPA encryption

Here are the details, taken from the Dlink site:

1) Login to your router.
Type the router address in the address bar of a web browser. For this router, the default is
192.168.0.1

You should see a popup box. If you have not changed the password, enter username: admin and leave the password blank.

This should bring up the configuration screen/user interface.

2) Change the router password.
If you haven’t set a password, this is a good place to start. Go to Admin > Tools. Set new admin and username passwords and click 'Apply'.


3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Home > Wireless, and change the SSID from ‘default’ to anything you like –as long as you can remember it. It is case sensitive, and you can usually use up to 32 letters – but don’t use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

4) Enable encryption
Still in Home > Wireless, select WPA-PSK.

Under ‘Passphrase’ you should enter a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers ( eg - 456HapPY2009toyou8899). It is case sensitive.

The passphrase is also called the network key, and sometimes WPA shared key, PSK, pre-shared key, WPA-PSK, authentication key.

Note down the passphrase/network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen. (There are other options you can configure at a later stage if you wish.)

When you next connect wirelessly, you'll see the router with its new name in your 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

Hope this helps, but if it is not clear or doesn't work, please come back to Fixya. Good luck...

Vaio PCG7ZIL - CAN'T REMEMBER PASSWORD-HELP!!


Log into your computer as administrator to do this. Most likely the password is Administrator, Admin or something like that and the password will be either blank or the same as the user name 'Administrator' or 'Admin'. Once logged in as administrator you can change the computer passwords and users accounts.
