My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

SOURCE: Administrator log in problem
Log in using the account name "Administrator".
If you do not have the password, reset it and try again.
Another option is to use " runas /USER: admnistrator install.exe " in a cmd window.
to launch the install program under admin account.

SOURCE: Problem in opening the links !
Do you use a router, or are you connecting the modem straight to the laptop?
Does the modem have multiple plugs for computers to plug into (if so, it is functioning as a router as well.?
Do you have any firewall/internet security software installed?
My guess without the above information would be that it is a problem with your DNS setting. Open "Network Connections" and right click on your "Local area connection" and go to properties. Click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP" entry and click properties. Be sure that it is set up to "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

I actually FOUND the solution at the linksys community forum site. It's weird, and I quote [kiefmoon], "I beat my head against this issue for the past few months, for the same reason as you: I'd built out a Windows Home Server, which can configure a home router automatically via UPnP, so I happily enabled it on the router, only to be locked out of the web-based configuration page.
Good news though! I just figured out the cause of the issue -- and it's really dumb:
You turn on UPnP on the Passwords tab, right? Well, if you look around on that page, you'll notice that, along with the option to enable UPnP, there are two password fields filled with asterisks. I think most people would assume that if they don't change anything in those fields, then click Apply, that the password has not been changed. And they'd be wrong. I don't know what the password gets changed to at that point, but it's not "admin".
...So the fix is: when you enable UPnP, do yourself a favor and enter a password in those fields (ideally something sronger than "admin" ). That way, you'll actually know what the password is when you get prompted for it."
