Trying to install router, no success

I've followed all the instructions for installation. On the last step, it prompts me to enter a username and password. Since my husband had tried to install it before, and had entered a set of username/password, I tried using those, and many more (including "Admin" and "Password" or "1234", but it's not working. What am I supposed to do?

Password reset on dell 518


Reset Your Windows Password Using the Command Prompt

1. Boot your computer using your Windows installation disc.
2. Wait for the setup files to load, and select your language. Click Next.
3. Click the Repair your computer link on the Install Windows screen.
4. Select the operating system to repair, and note the drive letter on which the OS is installed (it is probably C: or D:). Click Next.
5. Click Command Prompt at the bottom of the list of recovery tools.
Now you need to overwrite the Sticky Keys executable with the Command Prompt executable. Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature that allows a user to tap the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Windows key once to achieve the same effect as holding the key down. Ordinarily, tapping Shift five times activates Sticky Keys--but with this trick, you are going to make tapping Shift five times activate the Windows Command Prompt instead.
The instructions below use drive letter C: as an example. If your operating system is installed on another drive, replace C: with the appropriate drive letter.
1. In the Command Prompt window, type copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ and press Enter.
2. Type copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. At the login screen, tap Shift five times. The Command Prompt will pop up.
4. Type net user username password, replacing username with your username and password with a new password.
5. Exit the Command Prompt, and log in using your new password.
To prevent another user from exploiting the same trick to reset your password, you can restore Sticky Keys as follows:
1. Step through the instructions above to boot the PC using your Windows installation disc, open the recovery tools, and launch the Command Prompt.
2. Type copy /y c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. Pressing Shift five times will now activate Sticky Keys instead of the Command Prompt. Store your Windows installation disc in a secure location.

I DO NOT KNOW THE PASSWORD OR USERNAME FOR MY QWEST P5000Z MODEM . dONT KNOW WHERE TO START TO FIND IT OR CHANGE IT? PLEASE HELP! THANKS- AMY : )


what operating system ? and what type and brand of computer desktop laptop ?

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode.

When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.

Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.

In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.

hope this helps

Hello!

Solution 1: if you have windows 7 installed and luckily you have made the Password reset disk then it can reset your password..

Solution 2: if you have windows xp/vista then try to hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and then enter USER ID = administrator and PASSWORD = administrator. (this will only work if you have Standard user a/c and the admin A/c haven't been configured. )

Solution 3: If nothing above mentioned can be resorted then to last resort use the third party Linux Live CDs to reset passwords.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemrescuecd/files/sysresccd-x86/2.2.0/systemrescuecd-x86-2.2.0.iso/download

boot from the cd and follow the instruction ,

To brief it out : step 1 : ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows -o force
step 2 : cd /mnt/windows/Windows/System32/config
step 3 : chntpw -l SAM
step 4 : chntpw -u username SAM (replace word username with your login userID)
step 3 : press 2 hit enter and then enter new password then again hit enter and press Y to save and then hit enter.

Note : The above steps may change according to the PATH..

Done.. your new password has been set.

How To Set Up PPPoE DSL Connections with a WRT55AG Router


STEP 1: Before You Begin In order to set up your Linksys Router, be sure to first have the following: 1. A Linksys Router. 2. A DSL modem. 3. A working computer that can be wired in directly to the router for initial configuration and testing. 4. Two (2) standard Ethernet network cables. Linksys Routers come with one (1) standard network cable that you can use. 5. The PPPoE DSL username and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. STEP 2: Check Your Internet Connection Before installing your Linksys Router, it is important to first verify that you can successfully access the Internet by connecting directly to your modem (without your Linksys Router installed). 1. If you are connecting for the first time, follow the instructions provided by your provider to set up your modem and computer for online access. 2. Verify that you are able to access the Internet without any problems. If you are not able to get a connection, contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance. When you are able to access the Internet using your modem, continue to Step 3 and proceed with the installation of your Linksys Router. STEP 3: Connect the Hardware Follow these steps to connect your Linksys Router to your modem and computer. 1. Shut down your computer and unplug the power cords connected to your modem and Linksys Router if they are currently powered on. 2. Disconnect the network cable that connects to the back of your computer. 3. Connect the network cable that you just removed to the Internet port (or WAN port) located on the back of your Linksys Router. Your modem should now be connected to your Linksys Router. 4. Connect a second network cable back into your computer (into the same port that was disconnected in #2). 5. Connect the other end of the second network cable to one of the numbered ports located on the back of your Linksys Router (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Your computer should now be connected to your Linksys Router. The following diagram shows how your network should be connected. Verify that your connections are correct, and continue to the next step. 6. Plug the included power adapter into the router?s Power port. Then, plug the other end of the power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet to supply power to your router. 7. Turn on your computer. Do not turn on your modem at this time. Only your router and computer should be turned on for Step 4. STEP 4: Configure the Router Follow these steps to configure your Linksys Router. 1. On the computer that is connected to the Linksys Router, open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser?s Address or Location bar and click Go or press the [Enter] key on your keyboard. The IP address 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers. 3. A user name and password prompt will appear. Leave the user name field blank (empty), and type in admin (lowercase) for the password. The password admin is the default password of Linksys Routers. NOTE: The following username/password prompt screen will vary by operating system. 4. Once logged in, the router?s web-based Setup utility should load. In the section labeled Internet Connection Type, or WAN Connection Type depending on router model and firmware version, select the PPPoE option on the drop down list. Click here to view what an older Linksys router interface looks like. 5. Once PPPoE is selected, enter your PPPoE DSL username and password provided by your Internet Service Provider into the router?s User Name and Password fields. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. NOTE: Be sure to clear the ?Password? field before entering your account password. AOL USERS: Enter in your PPPoE username as screenname@aol.com. 6. If the Keep Alive option is not selected, be sure to select it instead of the ?Connect on Demand? option. The ?Keep Alive? option will ensure that your connection stays connected even when it is not in use. 7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the Save Settings, or Apply button depending on router model, to save your changes. OR 8. Once your changes are saved, you will be presented with a button to return or you will be returned to the previous page automatically. If prompted, press Continue to return to the router?s Setup page. 9. Close and exit the web browser. STEP 5: Power Cycle Follow these steps to power on and off your devices in the correct o

DSL (PPPoE) connection?


Make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet, Broadjump, or Enternet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet. Do not disable until you´ve downloaded the firmware in Step 1. Please make sure that your modem is not also a router. If it is or you do not know, please contact your ISP and change the modem to Bridge mode. Note: In some areas, BellSouth and Verizon may not use PPPoE. Step 1 Upgrade to the latest firmware. Step 2 Take a paperclip and perform a hard reset. With unit on, use a paperclip and hold down the reset button on the back of the unit for 10 seconds. Release it and the router will recycle, the lights will blink, and then stabilize. Step 3 After the router stabilizes, open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc), enter 192.168.0.1 into the address window, and hit the Enter key. When the password dialog box appears, enter the username admin and leave the password blank. Click OK. If the password dialog box does not come up repeat Step 2. Note: Do not run Wizard. Step 4 Click on the WAN tab on left-hand side of the screen. Select PPPoE. Step 5 Select Dynamic PPPoE (unless your ISP supplied you with a static IP address). Step 6 For Earthlink users, under the username field enter ELN/username@earthlink.net and your password, where username is your own username (some Earthlink users may not need the ELN/ in front of username). For SBC Global users, enter username@sbcglobal.net. For Ameritech users, enter username@ameritech.net. For BellSouth users, enter username@bellsouth.net.** For most other ISPs, enter username. **Note: In some areas, BellSouth may not use PPPoE. Ameritech users: If you cannot connect, try entering just the username (without the @ameritech.com) and then put ameritech.net in the Service Name box. Step 7 Maximum Idle Time should be set to zero. Set MTU to 1492, unless specified by your ISP, and set Autoreconnect to Enabled. Note: If you experience problems accessing certain websites and/or email issues, please set the MTU to a lower number such as 1472, 1452, etc. Contact your ISP for more information and the proper MTU setting for your connection. Step 8 Click Apply. When prompted, click Continue. Once the screen refreshes, unplug the power to the D-Link router. Step 9 Turn off your DSL modem for 2-3 minutes. Turn back on. Once the modem has established a link to your ISP, plug the power back into the D-Link router. Wait about 30 seconds and log back into the router. Step 10 Click on the Status tab in the web configuration where you can view the device info. Under WAN, click Connect. Click Continue when prompted. You should now see that the device info will show an IP address, verifying that the device has connected to a server and has been assigned an IP address.
