Question about Linksys EtherFast PrintServer Print Server
Netflix made an adjustment to the profile so that I can view their movies on my PC. After they did this (can't remember what it was), whenever I would boot up my PC the Windows XP would ask for administrator password, I never had that before and of course did not have my password. I went into the same profile and deselected the Administrator, now, whenever I boot up the PC, it asks for me to click on user and there is no users to click on. How can I get back to not requiring a password to get to my desktop?
Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?
Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

Contrary to the on-line advice that I have found, the Linksys wireless print server WPS54G is compatible with Windows 7. It is the installation program that is not compatible. While not as bad as the early days of setting hardware dip switches, the print server must be installed manually. Following are the many steps that I took to install my WPS54G to work with Windows 7; lengthy, but worth it.
1. Connect your printer to the PC using a USB cable and USB port. Allow the printer to install. Print a test page. Even though you just installed the printer, check for an updated printer driver at the manufacturer's website. I did this late in the process before I could get the printer to work. It installed an HP universal driver.
2. Set the printer as the default.
3. If you do not know the IP address of your print server, access the router using your browser. See your manual for instructions. For a Linksys, type the default IP router address 192.168.1.1 into the browser address bar. If you have done this in the past, set up your router security. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin.
4. Connect your print server to the PC using a USB cable and USB port.
5. On the router locate the DHCP Client Table and determine the IP address of the print server. You might have to refresh the table. The default is probably 192.168.1.78.
6. Access the print server using your browser and the IP address of the print server. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin. Set up security to match the router, SSID, password, type of encryption, etc.
7. Go to "Devices and Printers" (from the start menu), on the default printer icon that you just installed, right click and open "Printer Properties." Click on the "Ports" tab.
8. Click on "Add Port." Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click on "New Port." Click "Next." Add the IP address of the print server (probably 192, 168.1.78) and call the port whatever you want. Click "Next."
9. After the port configures and you get the "Port Settings" tab (you can also get there by clicking on "Configure Port), change the protocol to "LPR" and click "LPS byte counting enabled." Use "p1" or P2" etc. for the "queue name."
10. Disconnect the print server from the USB port and let it sit for 30 seconds.
11. Disconnect the printer from the USB port.
