If you have forgotten the password for your Linksys router and are not able to connect your new computer then try and follow the below steps:
WARNING: This would reset the router to it's factory settings (it generally does make a difference unless it's a gateway & you don't remember your ISP credentials. In your case it should be OK)
1. at the back of you Linksys you'll see a red button that says Reset2. Press and hold it for 30 seconds (this to set your router to default settings)3. Now open a web browser (say Safari) & go to http://192.168.1.14. Leave Login as blank and for password enter "admin"5. You should now see the Basic Setup page, at the top click on Administration option6. Under Management web page you'll see 2 text boxes, you should enter a password of your choice here (this would secure your router). At the bottom of the page click on Save Settings7. You'll be asked to login again, use the password you just entered
Your Linksys router is not secured. Hope this helps, please let me know if you need further assistance.

I have macbook osx an im locked out , i have no info


By not being more specific, when you note that you are locked out of your Macbook, I would have to presume you are referring to your User Administrator account or you have a FileVault password which is prompted for, upon booting up and you have forgotten that password.

Not sure which could be the case, so I will 1st provide you steps for resetting your Administrator password with your Mac OS X installation disc and 2nd, provide you, a key Apple support link, for fixing the forgotten FileVault password (just in case this is the culprit, which is locking you out of your Macbook).

BOOT TO TIGER/LEOPARD DISK-
• Place your installation Disk (Tiger or Leopard I presume) into your drive and
allow it to load.
• Restart your Mac
• As soon as you hear the Apple Chime, press the "C" key on your keyboard
and hold it.
• You will see a White Screen, Grey Apple first, do not release the C key until you
see a Spinning gear.
• Once you see that Spinning gear, release your C key and allow the disc to
continue loading

- RESETTING ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD-
(Works for both Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard))

• When the booting to the Mac OS X disc is completed, you will now be in the
Installer environment
• Enter to next page, look up on upper left corner you should see "Installer" near
the Apple menu.

• Two spaces over you should see Utilities. Click Utilities>Reset Password.
• Select your user name from the drop down list and reset your password.
• When you are done, simply exit the Reset Password and Installer and reboot.

• At the Login window, enter your new password and you should be back into your home User Administrator account.

Is there a way to override or reset the password on the iPod Nano


Unfortunately, if the password has been forgotten, you will have to "Restore" the iPod, which will erase all the songs and other files that are currently on there.

To update or restore iPod nano:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
2 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod nano is up to date or needs a newer version
of the software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod nano to its original settings (this erases all data
from iPod nano). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

G5 imac.. with leopard can not get past sign in


If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it with the discs that came with your computer:

  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note
    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  6. Enter a new password.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Click the red button in the upper left corner to quit the application.
  9. Choose Quit Mac OS X Installer... from the Mac OS X Installer menu.
  10. Click Restart.
