Re: Administrator Password Problems

I found this:

I've never tried it, so I would be interested to hear if it works for you.

Also, if the computer does not boot from the CD you'll need to go into the BIOS and make the CD a bootable device.

Good luck.

Unlock code

This guide will take you through the process of changing the password required to login to the

administration page of your modem / router / VOIP ATA.

1. Open your web browser and go to the address, using admin as the

username and password.

2. Hover your mouse over the "Advanced Settings" menu at the top of the page, and

then move it to "Access Control".

3. Click on "Passwords".

4. Enter the CURRENT password into the "Old Password" section.

5. Enter the password you would like to use into the "New Password:" and "Confirm
Password:" sections

6. Click "Apply/Save".

You will then be prompted to re-login to the administration page. Remember to use the

new password (and username if you changed it) you have just entered.

II have the modem SL2-141 and I change the password and now I forgot it? How can I recover it or reset the password?

I believe the Siemens "SL2-141" is a wireless router (not a "modem"). So I assume you are looking to retrieve/reset the password for your router. (If that's not correct, please let me know.)

There are typically two separate passwords used with a router, and it's not clear which type you're referring to. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

You may be able to retrieve either password (or both). The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

You may find it helpful to have the owner's manual available. (If you don't have that, you may download a copy at:

The web-based settings for the router should be accessible at this URL (for the computer connected to the router):
The default user name is "admin", and the default password is "admin" If you can access those settings, you should be able to view the security key, or to reset the key (see pp. 99-101).

Alternatively, if the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some free software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:
RouterPassView by NirSoft

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:
by NirSoft

Finally, if you are unable to retrieve the password(s) by the above methods, then you may need to reset the router to its factory default. Note that this will delete any settings you have made (including administrator password and security key). You would then need to reinstall and reconfigure the router, starting from scratch.

If you can access the web-based settings for the router, you may then reset the router to its default by following the onscreen guidance (see p. 102 of the manual). If you can't access the web-based settings, then you can still reset the router using the physical reset button (see p. 111).. (There should be a small pinhole on the rear of the unit - simply insert a small firm object and press firmly for 10-20 seconds.)

Hi I have a 3Com NBX V3000 and i forgot the password what I can d

You must make sure to use the correct username. The only username that can be used for administrator is administrator (ALL LOWER CASE). It is case sensative and can not be capitalized. You typically have to open a case with 3Com to get the current password. There is no "backdoor" way to gain access or change the password but if you have console access to the system you can enter the nbxDb command and get an encrypted password. If the system is running a software version 4.0 and older then the password is unencrypted and you are done. I can get the encrypted password decrypted if needed.

Forgot my password

Lost passwords are never good. Not all hope is lost, so long as you aren’t using the master Administrator account. You didn’t specify which operating system you were using, but this tip is for XP only, as the main Administrator account is disabled in Vista by default.First thing you’re going to do is reboot your computer. When it comes on, press the F8 key (you may need to tap this a few times, just to make sure you’re hitting it at the appropriate time). You should be greeted with a prompt for booting into Windows, select Safe Mode. When the computer finishes booting, you should see an account labeled Administrator. Try to log into this account. If no administrator password was setup when you installed Windows, it may let you right in. Otherwise, you’ll need to remember that password that you set.
Once in this account, head into the Control Panel and access the Users area. You should be able to select the account you generally use, and reset the password. If you can’t get into the main Administrator .
Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.For example generally
