Leave the User ID blank, and type "admin" for password. That's the default values for install.

If that doesn't work, try resetting the router by using a paperclip to depress the "Reset" switch on the back of the box (while it is on), holding it in for 10 seconds, and then releasing. This sets the router back to factory default status.

Hope that's helpful.

Try doing a factory reset of the router by pressing and holding the RESET button on the back down for about 15 seconds.
After you do this, then try the installation again. The factory default password is "admin".

Unfinished XP upgrade


The xp set-up page appear on the middle of the set-up right after the restart (first one ) ..if this is the case you should insert the disk again ..and let it finish the installation ..(will stay a few minutes and do nothing and after that will start installing devices have patience )
It may also be a case of files not being loaded well and in this case just take the installing from the start by inserting the disk again ..and press any key when it asks ..format the C drive after choosing it as location ..and continue with the loading of files and after restart ..do not press any key ..and let it boot to the set-up and go on with finishing installation .From the restart point it should last about 39 minutes to the finish ..
Please do not hesitate to ask any question if you do not understand ..
In sort ..insert the disk and start it ..and let it continue the installation cause it is just to the middle ..when you finish ..install drivers ..make teh connection ..and install antivirus..and you are done .

I can'install songbird My laptop (OS Vista), It asks for Administrator Password and I don't know what to do! Help!!!


Hi evabonito,

From the sound of it, perhaps your laptop settings are requesting the administrator's password (your laptop password) to ensure that you (the administrator) would like to install the software?

To my knowledge, Philips Songbird will not ask for an administrator password during installation.

Here is an excellent Support Site for Philips Songbird, including FAQ's, a chat link, software and drivers: http://ow.ly/5PTZu

You can also reach dedicated Consumer Care agents to troubleshoot your mp3 issue by calling 1-888-744-5477.

To install Philips Songbird:

The latest version of Philips Songbird is available for download from www.philips.com/songbird.

Tip: For optimal playback of Philips Songbird, please always have the latest version of Quick Time and Windows Media Player 11 (or later) installed before installation of Philips Songbird.
  1. Go to www.philips.com/songbird.
  2. Click "Download Philips Songbird".

  3. A window will pop up. Select "Save" to start downloading Philips Songbird.
    110707072341_76202.jpg

  4. Double-click the file you just downloaded to start installation.
  5. Select the desired language and your country.

  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to finish installation.

  7. When installation is completed, click "Finish".

How to fix Fat copies are not identical


Get your windows XP cd and boot it, wait for the installer to boot up and press key 'R', the installer will ask you for a password, if you don't have any just press 'ENTER' on the other hand if you have a password for your computer type the password and then press 'ENTER', then type 'fixmbr c:' (without the quotes) say yes to everything, once finished type 'fixboot c:' (again, without the quotes) say yes to the procedure, once done that, take out your windows xp cd and type 'exit', this will solve your problems, if the problem persists do the same procedure, but ONLY type 'chkdsk c:' after the password prompt, hope it helps

My gateway start up screen asking for user name and password.wat an i put


You have to insert your user name and password in order to log in. If you have forgotten this you have to either find out what it is or redo the install again sometimes you can use default passwords from the company or some crack software that will remove this. It is a pain to have this happen again it is important to remember these or do not use passwords period if this keeps happening. You may have to reinstall the Operating System again that is the easiest way to do remove this. Then start fresh, John

    Will not finish set up


    Try reset ---
    Hold the Reset button on the router in for about 30 seconds - then

    To reconfigure, connect to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.

    On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin."
    On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."


    Let me know if this helped :)
