Next to the WAN port on the rear is the reset button
Press and hold it in while plugging in the power. Hold it for about 10 seconds and the router is reset to factory defaults

My Facebook has been hacked and now it shows more than one and can't get into it how do I get rid of them and start all over

You can't get rid of them because you have lost ownership. Put your email address into the box and the click forgot password. If they haven't changed the notification email address you will get the password reset link via email.

If you really want a bran new start, open a new GMail or Outlook email address and use that to open the new Facebook account. Make sure your password is strong using Capitals, numbers and symbols. Something like 'Emerald$2015'.

My laptop asks for a Device Ownership Password and none of the numbers/letters on the 2wire device do i find the device ownership password so that i can connect wireless with my laptop?

Device ownership code is part of a stupid contraption called WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), which was meant to simplify connection to wireless access points, but doesn't simplify anything in my opinion...

If the modem has been set up by your provider, then they should supply you with that number. It may be printed on a sticker on the modem itself.

Alternatively you may try finding in your laptop WiFi settings an option to disable this WPS functionality and connect in a "normal" way. It's hard to give a solid recipe, as there are lots of different WiFi software packages out there - every manufacturer seems to have an ambition to come up with their own, whereas Windows since XP Service Pack 2 onwards can use WiFi natively, without any 3rd party add-ons.

I have a DIR-615 router and can not locate the device ownership password. It is not on the label beneath the MAC address. Any ideas?

This Device Ownership password is actually reffering to the WPS PIN number of your router which is usually on the sticker on the device. If you can't see it anywhere on the device, scan for wireless networks and connect to your network.
Once it will ask for the device Ownership password again, just click on the phrase that says " I want to enter a network key or passphrase instead" or " I don't want to configure, I just want to connect" ( this is applicable with vista ). If you have an XP computer and your using the wireless utility of your computer, disable that utility and use the Windows Zero Configuration.
