Are you talking about it asking for a Network Key or are you trying to login to the web interface of the router to configure it?

At any rate, if it's a network key you're looking for and you do not remember it I would connect your laptop to the router using a network cable and log into the web interface to reconfigure the key. All you need is the IP Address of the router which you can find by going to a command prompt (START MENU | RUN | Type CMD | Click OK) and typing IPCONFIG. Hit Enter and you will find the "DEFAULT GATEWAY". This IP Address is the address fo the router.

Put the ip address in your address bar in internet explorer or whatever browser you use. Log into the router. If you never created a password the default for most LINKSYS routers is a blank username and admin as the password.

You can go to the wireless security section and change the security key.

Hope this helps.

Reset bios password on an acer laptop

To reset BIOS password, you must have the password to begin with. If you have that, enter the setup and navigate WITHOUT changing any setting, until you find "Change password."

That's a blind guess, but educated.

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I changed my laptop password now it won't let me get back to my windows. what do I do to fix it?

in the welcome screen where it asks you to to enter the new password, press ctrl+alt+del twice... the screen will change and it will ask you to enter the username and password...

Enter your user name as administrator and password (type the administrator password if you have created one) or leave it blank...

if it asks for the correct administrator password contact your laptop vendor who installed the windows Operating system on this computer for the administrator password...

once you have logged in as administrator you can delete the old unwanted account or change the password for the other account...

Hi, I need to unlock my belkin N router because I have misplaced the password and can not connect my ipod or any other technology to it... Can you please help?

Restoring the Factory Defaults
Press and hold the “Reset” button for at least 10 seconds, then
release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The
“router” light will begin to blink. When the “router” light becomes
solid again, the default restore is complete.

Then, use your Setup CD and go though the setup wizard and you'll be back up again soon!

Im forget mein passport

f you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.

If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.

1. Power off the computer
2. Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
5. Reinstall the DIMM cover.

If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:

1. Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
2. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
3. Click on the Password icon.
4. Click on the Power on icon.
5. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
6. Press Enter twice.
7. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.

Please rate my response.
