Hello im alex jr flores and i will like to ask you how i can have back my email yahoo because my mom stole my account and i want my account back because we do not have a good relationship she want to do...

Well, that is going to be hard. You basically will have to guess the password for access to it, then immediately change the password.
Since you did not give the email address, nobody can do anything more. What does her phone have to do with your email? Access Yahoo mail through a computer... its the same account no matter which way you access it. Sounds to me like you have bigger problems then just an email account, though. Just start a new one, and tell all your friends that its now changed! But mostly, it sounds like you need to work on some of your own issues (like feeling like a victim in this) and get a life that does not depend on some 1 1/2 year-old email address that probably nobody sends anything to anyway, since its been so long!!!

How can wifi password changing

connect to your wireless modem via an Ethernet cable for best result.

open internet explorer on your computer. type (or

you will be asked to enter username and password.

then after successful login, go to wireless settings, may be there is a separate tab named "security" under wireless settings. or else find out which is the area with "encryption"

there you could see existing password, just change with 10 characters. save it. you have done.

it is recommended to go to reboot tab and to click ok for rebooting your modem. other wise just power off and switch on again after 5 seconds.

Change password

when i think of routers to passwords come to mind:
the administrative username and password
the wireless name (SSID) and wireless password

if you don't know the admin stuff you will need to set the router to factory defaults before you can do anything. its easy use something to push the reset button for 12 seconds. login by going to or and enter the default admin stuff "admin" and "password".

now to change the admin password (so other people can't mess with your router) go to the admin tab.
to re-setup your wireless go to the wireless tab

hopefully something i said answers your question

yes if you can connect through a cord, punch in to your web browser this ip address and it should bring up your control panel for your router, it will either be, or, then you can go in and adjust everything and change your stuff. user name and password will either be left blank or admin, admin as both.

How to get network password on a Dlink DI 524Up wireless router?

What is the password that you needs? Is this that appears in this link ? If so, the user is admin and the password may be blank if nobody changed it but to acess the router you need to be connected by wire if the remote management option is disabled. If the password has being changed and forgotten then you need to reset the router.

My Dad and I are trying to figure out the username and password for our router's site, other websites say it should be <blank> admin but that does not work.

  1. hope this helps
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.

3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

The default username and password to configure router doesnt work

Try to turn off your modem first before trying to open the router's setup page. By default, there's no username and the password is admin. Also turn off any firewall you have.
