To secure a network, you need to log into the router. Insert the router IP address in address bar and then type in router username/password to access the Settings page of router. You'd be concerned with the Security or Wireless Security page.

7 Things You Should Know About Windows 7 Password

But for a number of reasons, the password can be easily lost, forgotten or cracked easily by others, bringing you serious consequence. To better protect your password and computer, you can learn the 7 tips listed below. With these helpful tips in mind, you can keep a peaceful mind when you forgot or <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/lost-windows-7-password.html" style="font-weight: bold;">lost Windows 7 password</a>.<br /><br />1. Avoid weak and common passwords. Today many users like creating passwords using the name of their children or any part of the street address or birthrate or setting a common password like "123456", "password", etc. which are vulnerable to be cracked. Although no password is invulnerable given enough time. But the stronger it is, the more difficult it will be to crack the password with a brute-force search or guessing. A strong password mixed up with upper and lower case letters along with symbols and numbers will definitely improve your computer security.<br /><br />2. Don't use your Windows password everywhere. Today it's not an easy task for one to create various strong passwords that is easy to remember yet hard to be guessed. For convince, some users may prefer to use a same password for various accounts. But this could be dangerous. If someone compromised your password and they could access to your computer and other accounts with the same password.<br /><br />3. Create Windows 7 password reset disk. Passwords can be easily forgotten or lost. In Windows 7, the easiest method for this is to create a "Password Reset Disk" firstly. If you have access issues, you can <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-7-password.html" style="font-weight: bold;">reset Windows 7 password</a> with the disk. Please note the password reset disk will only work for the account it was created for and cannot be used to reset the password of another account. And please remember to store it in a safe place.<br /><br />4. Change your password on a regular basis. If somebody finds out what your password is, either by cracking by guess, getting access to the file in which you had saved it, or the paper or folder that you had copied it on, your system and data will be at risk. To avoid this, it is advised to keep changing your password frequently. This reduces the possibility of your password being hacked.<br /><br />5. Fingerprint can also be your password. In addition to letters, numbers and symbols, fingerprint is also one of your choices when creating a password in Windows 7. If you have a biometric sensor like a fingerprint reader, it fairly easy for you to enable the Windows 7 fingerprint logon. With this, you'll be never troubled by a forgotten or lost Windows 7 password. But intentional finger injuries may lock you out of computer.<br /><br />6. Windows Installation disc is helpful if Windows 7 password lost. If you lost Windows 7 password without a password reset disk, you can use your Windows 7 installation disc and access to recovery options to bypass it. This is a very efficient method and works well but you must have a viable system restore point to use that was created before you started having logon issues. If you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, you can also create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options that can help you recover the forgotten password.<br /><br />7. Resort to password recovery if Windows 7 password gets lost. Forgetting Windows password is not a big problem as long as you get reliable <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/" style="font-weight: bold;">Windows password recovery</a> software. As for Windows 7, it is highly suggested to try Windows Login Recovery if you are not good at computer. It allows you to reset Windows 7 password by burning a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive in a few minutes.

How to unlock computer? forgot password


If you locked your computer using the BIOS lock features st start up, and you have a button battery on your motherboard, remove the battery for a few minutes while computer is off and re-install it. That will clear the CMOS settings and security passwords. If your computer is a newer model, ie. NO button battery, it utilizes a EPROM chip that you cannot re-program yourself. It has to be done by Dell, or a Dell Support Tech who has the tools to flash the EPROM chip. If you are locked out of your OS, ie. Windows, You can use a special CD disc that has password recovery and reset features to find/change the Windows password. You must change the Boot order in the computer to CD as first boot device when using the disc.

I seem to have lost the disc to install my printer


Well it all depends on what type of printer it is. Most printing companies don't give a disc with their printer. Mainly because they are supposed to install automatically when plugged in. If your computer asks for a disc, maybe it needs one to install the printer. try contacting the company who mad the printer. You never know if they forgot to put the disc in when they packed it. If that is the case, they probably will be more than happy to give you another disc.

Hope this helps!

I forgot my password for my imation 512mb usb device. how do i disable the password to get back in?


To access the secure partition, you will need to remove the secure partition first by reformatting it. This action will cause any data stored on your drive to be lost but you will be able to set a new password and retransfer your data to the drive.
