If you have forgotten the login and password for the DLink router you can reset the router back to the factory defaults.
In general, to reset the D-Link to the Factory Default Settings, please follow these steps:
1. Turn off the router
2. Locate the Reset button on the back of the router.
3. Use a paper clip to press the Reset button and power on.
4. Hold for about 5 seconds (don’t hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
5. After you have completed the above steps, the router will be reset to the factory default settings

How to setup wifi password

My Friend,
You can follow these steps to setup a wireless password.
>Connect your computer with a Ethernet cable to Slot number 1 on the router.(please don't connect to the internet port.) Just go to command prompt on your computer by typing CMD on RUN. >Type Ipconfig there and then you have to look for ipv4 address. >In this address search for the default gateway on the computer. >Type the address in the default gateway into the address bar on the browser. > Then this will ask you for the user name and password . Leave username blank and in password type admin. You will see the router set-up page . Go to the wireless tab and below that you will see wireless security tab. There you can name your network by changing name under ssid. And select the security type as WEP OR WPA. create the password fro you wireless . click on the save settings.
Hope this will help you.

I want to know how to connect my ssid pasphrase located on the back of my router and when i tried to conect it to my ps3 conole it said it was weak and it couldnt find the acess point or something so can...

i'm going to assume that you are asking "how to connect your ps3 to your home network?"
if your home is set up with wireless modem or router and your computers are connected wirelessly its pretty simple to set up. more likely you or someone who set it up probably set it up securely meaning with security key and password. So you do have to know few things about your home network. like what is the name of your home network (SSID). the security setting of your home network. and finally the password of your network. if you don't know these things about your home network you will not be able to get connected wirelessly. but if you do have these info on hand read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

Turn on your ps3 and from the XMB...
1) go to Settings
2) Scroll down to Network Settings and press X
3) Scroll down to Internet Connection Setting and press X. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as....
...SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) ...SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) ...SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network probably wont do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such. yours should also be locked and have password on it too.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network. if you don't know ask the person who set up your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password. Yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network setting, and the password of your home network.

on the other hand if you are setting up a wired connection it makes it a whole lot simpler. you don't need to know your network name, security key, and password.

make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged in to your ps3 and to your modem or router

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wired
6) auto-detect
7) automatic -- for the IP address setting
8) do not set
8) automatic -- DNS setting
9) automatic -- MTU
10) do not set -- PROXY SERVER
save connection setting
test connection

if your home network is set up and u got the ps3 connected it should work

I cant sign in to yahoo messenger it keeps on telling me that my user name and password is incorrect but i had already re type it 20 times but still it keeps on saying that. what shall i do? thnaks

Double check and make sure your caplock key isn't on and that you don't have a stuck key. You can check this by typing in notepad or an email, type your password and look at it. Once you see that it's typing the correct password (and correct case, ie capital letters or not) you can try copying the password and pasting it into yahoo login and see if it works then. Because you can't see a password as you type it this often helps.

Also think about if you used a capital letter or perhaps spelled something slightly different when you picked your nick name and password.

My memory card is asking for a password and i never put a password and my memory card has alot of things i cant lose please help me

Unless someone else has entered one (worth asking any friends or relatives), it may be set to the factory default. These are usually: 1234, 12345, or 0000. Unfortuntaly if those don't work you may need to contact the supplier.

My company has not used our wireless connection in a long time and has forgot the passphrase to get into out hughes HN7700S Routor. is there a default one that we could use


I checked, and there actually is a default one for you.

Unlike alot of other brands of satellite type modems, the Hughes corporation, being a large Government contractor decided to put a default login-password into all their machines.

Now, if your company has changed the password on it more than a couple of times, then this might not work.

First, you will need to open your browser, and in the address bar type in

This should access the router itself.

Next it will ask for a login and password.

Type in ADMIN as your login name, and leave either type in ADMIN again for the password blank.

Hughes says both of these ways should work, but you need to try them for yourself to see which one it is.

After you access the modem, then you can adjust the settings, change the password, and anything else that you wish to modify.

Just don't forget to wite eveything down that you change, otherwise you may make it where noone can access it at all.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day!

How do i turn on brian the brain

Turning On Brian for the First Time:
This operation must be done by an adult:
Hold down the “Q” key and push the RESET button at the same time. First, release the RESET button,
and then release the “Q” button after 2 seconds.
Enter Your Name:
Brian’s your new best buddy - he will ask you for your name. Type it in using the keypad controller. If
he is familiar with your name, he will call you by your name. If not, he’ll call you pal, buddy or dude.
Password Set Up:
Brian is a password protected to make sure that it is really you that is interacting with him. He’ll guide
you through setting up your secret password - think of a word that is easy for you to remember. To
make it easy for you to remember and for Brian to understand, use a word with just one syllable like
“SMART” or “BLUE”. Make sure you are by yourself in a quiet room so no one else can hear you tell
Brian your password!
When Brian asks you to say your password, hold the keypad about 12”inches [30cm] from you and
speak clearly but in a normal voice. Brian will ask you to repeat your password.
Brian will also ask you to type in your password. He will then ask you to type it in again for
confirmation. If you want, you can type in a password that’s different from the one you spoke
to Brian - he’ll remember both. Your typed-in password must be shorter than 16 letters.
Password Reset:
If you have forgotten your password and want to reset it, enter the following code when Brian
is asking who you are: Hold down the “Q”, “SPACE/SKIP” and “P” buttons at the same time.
Time and Date Set Up:
Brian will tell you how to set up the correct time and date.

You can get the manual on link below.

Good luck and please rate 4 thumbs for free answer.

Problems connecting to internet on new apple itouch

Hi Kath,

First, it's probably a good idea for you to change the network name from 'NETGEAR' as it could conflict with any other devices nearby. Also change the password from the routers default.
Don't worry about ip addresses and the like. all that is sorted automatically.
Just go to the home screen, then settings, then Wifi, turn off then on the wifi and wait for it to show up. If it does then select it, type in the password and tap Join.
If it doesn't show up or connect then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password.
If none of that works do a restore and software update as described on page 111 of the user guide (also available from

All the best
