Re: password for 486

Remove the battery from the mother board.
Jumper the CMOS to discharge it. You may
want to check you Mother Board manual, to
see which jumper it is. Some require you to
turn the Mother Board BACK ON for two seconds. (It will NOT come up, just will
discharge the CMOS and the battery will NOT
be there to replace the energy, so everything
is GONE. You will know if you have done it right, when
you boot up again, the BIOS will NOT recognize the hard disk (need to set it up
again), the date will be wrong (set it up again also) and the floppy drive will not
be recognized (new setup). But then try your password. It should let
you right in then. Let me know if it works. Best Regards, PS Make sure you have the right mother
board jumpers to discharge the CMOS, YOU
CAN DO DAMAGE ALSO, if they are not the
right ones.

My handy tone-486 box keeps flashing red every 3 seconds and I have no dial tone. My internet works and I have power and a working phone line to the box. Help.

Lifted this straight from the manual:

Button flashes every 4 seconds
(if SIP server is configured)
HT–486 fails to register

So basicly, that means your HandyTone 486 ATA fails to register with the SIP-server. That means you either have not recieved your IP-tele yet, or that your ISP have failed to register you.

A wrong pass word was entered and the devise was can i access the device again?

you would need to factory reset the adapter if you dial *** then 02 it will give you ip address now if you put the ip address into your main web browser it will pull up a configuration page for your handy tone you will see a tab on the left hand side that says reset click that and factory reset the device this should wipe out all current configurations on tht device

Can't login to

Hi the username and password for the router has been changed while the previous configuration.If you can call your service providor they should be able to provide the same.There are other some common usernames and passwords which you can try.
*******Alternatively you can also try to reset the router to its default settings by pressing the reset button at the back of the router(however this should be the last step of action).
