    Sorry I am no longer active on this site, I hope some else here that can assist you. However I am not familiar with a required change function for router passwords. Are you sure this is not a server or another application requesting a password?

How do i change the router network password? what is the ip adress??


The internal, LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number. Linksys routers, for example, use 192.168.1.1 for their internal IP address. D-Link and Netgear routers typically use 192.168.0.1. Some US Robotics routers use 192.168.123.254, and some SMC routers use 192.168.2.1. No matter the brand of router, its default internal IP address should be provided in documentation. Administrators often have the option to change this IP address during router setup. In any case, however, the private LAN-IP address remains fixed once set. It can be viewed from the router's administrative console.
The external, WAN-IP address of the router is set when the router connects to the Internet service provider. This address can also be viewed on the router's administrative console. Alternatively, the WAN-IP address can be found by visiting a Web-based IP address lookup service like http://checkip.dyndns.org/ from any computer on the home LAN.
Another way to identify the public IP addresses of routers, involves executing a ping or traceroute command. From inside a home network, the (DOS) command "ping -r 1" will send a message through the home router that will cause its IP address to be displayed. For example, "ping -r 1 www.yahoo.com" should result in a message like the following displayed on the command prompt:
To change router password Open your Internet browser, type the address of the router into the URL address bar, and open it. The address is typically in the form of 192.168.X.X. This is the local network address. Enter the account name and password to open the router setup utility. Navigate through the setup utility until you find the screen that will let you change the password. You will need to enter the old password to change it. Decide on a new password that has good security to a hacker. The best password is more than 8 characters and uses both lower case and upper case letters and numbers. Some will allow you to use special characters also. Do not make the password anything that can be found in a dictionary or any date of significance. Enter the old password in the change password page of the router. When prompted then enter the new password. You will be asked to enter it twice to confirm that the correct password is entered. Immediately, record the new password in some secure location that you can find if you forget it. Confirm the password change on the router page and log off the router. To check the information and that the router has been setup correctly with the new password, open the router address in the browser again and login with the new information. If you are able to login, you have successfully changed the password. Network: Router Ssl Vpn

I can't sign in on the playstation 3vthe error code that keeps coming up is 80023017 whats the mater


PS3 Error 80023017 & 8002F0C1 & 8002f14e

Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

I can't access my linksys router set-up page. I keep getting this message: "401 unauthorized" authorization required


" 401 unauthorized" authorization required " .This message means the user name and password for the router is not correct. the default password of the Linksys router is admin with no user name ( leave it blank )
If the default password is not working then the router password must be changed.
If you don't know the password of the router then you will need to reset and reconfigure the router.
Once you reset the router , it will come back to the factory default settings.

My laptop is hooked up to the router - I bought an adapter for my desktop - the two will work together, however now my sons can't get onto the internet with their iphones - is there a password? my service...


they should be able to. if your home network is secure it will require a password. there will most likely be an icon of a lock by the home network you choose. if not then your iphones can not accept the signal your router is putting out.
If that is the case you will need to go through the steps to change it so you can.

My password is "wrong' whenever I try to connect on my laptop


That's firmware problem on your router. Try to download the latest firmware for you router from www.linksys.com/download then load the latest firmware. After successfully updated the firmware, you need to hard reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 10 seconds and plug it back in. You will need to reconfigure the wireless settings.

Zoom X6 Password change and Firmware Update


Yes you are right. I agree with you. Real tech support really matters. 

 I would like to add information about what you did when you downloaded the firmware, there are certain firmware for its problem. One firmware is design to fix this particular problem . Are there firmware version and short description on the website? You might run accross one that fixes "saving problem on User interface" that might be the solution. But you are indeed on the right track. its just that the website of Zoom maybe is not that detailed and userfriendly.
