Return the machine, you can't be operating equipment you don't secure or track.

AOL questions should go to AOL and you know it. Perhaps if you know where you got the router (e.g. your telco) you would enquire after the default passwords for things they hand out, or ask your telco's broadband provisioning help section.

Just for fun, I'll tell you my hideously designed ZOOM DSL modem has a default username of "administrator" and default password of "zoomadsl". You should look up the password for the modem you have, if you are using your own router. Similarly, you might blow off anything AOL asks by clicking -cancel- whenever it bothers you (and it might work! What's AOL's business knowing that stuff, anyhow?)

Bought a new computer and trying to install my 4-port wired router and when I go to http:192.168.0.1 it tells me to type in admin for username and leave the password blank but when I do it asks me to type...


The Dynex manual for this router says the default address of the the router is 192.168.1.1 and both the username and password should be admin. If you are connecting to 192.168.0.1, you might be reaching some other router connected to your network, or the Dynex settings have been changed. You can restore default factory setiings by resetting the router. Use a straightened-out paper clip to press the recessed RESET button on the rear panel. Hold it until the System LED flashes three times, then release the button. The router will reboot and factory default settings will be back.

It is a small Netgear from aol and I wish to change it over to a belkin . when i asked oal for help they gave me e serious of leters and numbers and told me to contac belkin and you would put these...


Belkin is compatible with aol, its just that the company dont support that router.. ie there support isnt trained in using it. They should provide you with the correct aol settings to use with the belkin. To put these in, connect your belkin
  • open internet explorer or alternative browser
  • type 192.168.2.1 in the webaddress bar and enter
  • this is the offline website for your belkin
  • click connection type on the left
  • leave the password box empty and click submit
  • On the connection type page you should be using pppoe
  • go next, your usernamer should be in the form
  • yourphoneno@dialbb.com and password
  • Aol will provide correct username and password if unsure of login details
  • VPI and VCI are 0 and 38 respectively
  • Mtu should be 1400
  • The rest of the default belkin settings are fine, click next and apply or finish at the bottom.
  • Your belkin router should now be connected to Aol

Any problems get back to me. Hope this helps.

Can't remember pass word to get on and we have a new lap top and its asking for a password.


hi welcome to fixya! if your talking about your internet router, the common username and password which the manufacturer usually used is...
username: admin
password: admin

and if it is about your laptop... well... better seeing that person in whom you've bought that laptop and ask the password... or ask for assistance at any service center near you. I'm sure they would love to help you. have a nice day!

Zyxel internet configuration doesn't accept passowrd/username


AOL have a couple of special requirements for the username and password which can catch you out.

Here are a couple of pages which might help:
1. AOL screenname requirements
2. AOL password requirements

This issue caught me out while ago. However, this may not be your problem, so please come back if this answer doesn't help.

Need a network key


Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the setup page of the router youc an go to Wireless tab and click on Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you need....

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...

All routers have a username and password on them, sometimes it doesn't come default and you have to set up. By default the username is admin, and the password is blank. Hope this helps
