I put in my user name and password .could not enter


It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page. Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.

Hello,

If You are using a windows XP, the solution is for You to turn on the laptop allow it booth, once it gets to the log in page, press the ctrl+alt+delete button, then a page will come up, You will have the page where You will have to enter the user name and the password, just type Administrator in the user name and leave the password blank and press enter or log in, it will log in for You, there You can access the user profile and change the password through the control panel.

If You are using the windows vista, then when You get to the log in page, then You press the control+alt+delete button, then You select start new task, then the computer will log in with a neutral profile, after it has one that, then You can go to the control panel and change the password for the user profile You used to lock the password.

Forgot login password


Overview If you have forgotten your Linksys password, you have a couple of options. You can try to use the default settings to log into the router settings and change your password, or you can simply reset the router and set it up again. Either way, you will need to create a new password to use in the future. Read on to learn what to do about a lost Linksys router password.
Try the Default You can try to log in to the Linksys setup page and create a new router password using the default user name and password. This will only work if you did not change the default password when you originally set up your router.
f0636833200caec5b4ef0a64a206141c19578565_small.jpg
Open a web browser window, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Do not include any prefixes, such as http:// or www. Press Enter or click Go. A dialog box will open prompting you for a user name and password. Try leaving both fields blank and clicking OK. If this does not give you access, type admin into the User Name box and Password into the Password box. Click OK again. If you succeed, you can configure your router settings again and create a new password. Read the first article in this series, Configuring a Linksys Router Settings, to learn how to do so.
Reset the Router
If you are unable to log in to the Linksys router setup page using the default user name and password, you do have another option to solve your lost Linksys router password problem, which is to reset your router. 3d1cb9ca10deccfc3b6a854cda8b29a7cd240d6d_small.jpg

Look for a small Reset button on the back, front or the bottom of your Linksys router. The location of the button depends on the router model, so look carefully. As a precaution the buttons are small and inconspicuous, so that users do not accidentally reset their routers.
Once you have located the Reset button, press and hold it for at least ten seconds. You may need to use something with a small point, such as the end of a paperclip or a pencil tip to depress the button. Release the button and wait for the router to start back up. This will restore the router to its initial factory settings as it was when you first set it up. You will need to configure it again and choose a new password. Refer to the first article in this series for instructions on how to do so.

About a year ago a friend set up our wireless router the problem is they didnt know they were doing it and now we dont know the Password to log in on other wireless machines laptops etc i simply need to...


Log in to your router's configuration page using your internet browser by typing "http://192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
Type in “admin” for both username and password which is the default user name and password.
Click on “Setup” at the top
Scroll down to “Network Setup”


If you have forgotten the router's user name and password, and the default user name and password aren't working, try resetting the router back to factory defaults:

With the router powered on, hold the reset button (located on the back of the router) for 25 seconds. Then disconnect the power from the router and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in.

After the reset, you should be able to login to the router with the default user name and password.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
