Why my tablet wont go to the home page


Do you mean it won't go to the "home screen" (past the android guy)? If yes then try to reset it (if a tiny hole on the back exists with "reset" marked, insert a tiny pin and push, so that it restores to factory default settings).

How to delete genieo


If you value your privacy, and the stability of your computer, then don't follow any suggestions that include using the genieo adware uninstaller : it leaves active software behind.

The company know this, but seem unable or unwilling to resolve it.

Instead, try to carefully follow the instructions at

How do I log into my router config if I don't know the password? I've tried pushing the button on the back to reset but that didn't work


Hi vmontour,


To Factory reset your router you need to locate the Reset Button at the back of the router. The Reset Button is the small hole at the back and you need a Pen or a Paperclip to press it. Press and hold the reset button for 15-30 seconds. Make sure that the router is on when you reset it.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.0.1. the username is admin and the password is blank.

Rate me if this will help you so that i can help other people.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Some times the configration page but when i type the user name ane password, shows that is wrong


By default, DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router doesn't have password for the setup page . The username is Admin. So, type Admin in the username field and don't type anything in the password field. If it doesn't work still you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.

Where do I find the WEP key code on my modem model number 2247NWG


the network administrator (whoever configure your router) should have the wep key you're looking for, if you're that person and forgot your wepkey you need to reset your router so you can go back into the router configuration page and reset a new key (and hopefully you'll remember it next time).
here some instructions for your product:

check on page 14 (FAQ) of router's manual
resetting router to default configuration (router's manual)

good luck!
