Are you talking about your Windows administrator password?

Are there any other user accounts on the computer? If so, there may be a way to recover your administrator password through a command prompt.

If however you are the only user on the computer, I'm afraid you will have to reformat/reinstall the operating system. =(

How can i rest a password on my truvision dvr30


The TVR 30 is shipped with one predefined user for the system administrator and
seven predefined standard users. The default system administrator logon uses admin
as the account name with a default password of 1234. You can modify the admin
password but not the admin user name. The seven predefined standard users are
labeled User1 to User7 with a default password of 4321 and level 4 access. The
administrator can customize the seven standard users and define their privileges.
Use the Users screen (shown in Figure 20 below) to manage users.
Note: When accessing the main menu for the first time, the system lets you pick
either an admin user or a regular user (User 4) by default. If you select User 4, enter
the initial default password of 4321.

What is the username and password for the brighthouse ubee


You are able to access some of the modem/router settings using the credentials:

User Name - "user"
Password - "user"

Without the quotes, of course. This will not give you complete access, however, it will allow you to modify a fair amount (not in my opinion) of settings and view various modem/gateway information pages.

Unfortunately, Brighthouse (BHN) is on their game, when it comes to locking certain features/settings from being changed by the consumer. Time Warner Cable (TWC) sold select areas to BHN some time ago. TWC is a bit more open to user changes.
For example, TWC and BHN both supply the modem/router Ubee DDW3611. TWC's supplied unit's configuration can be accessed by the customer through the 'User' account and the 'Admin' account. BHN, on the other hand, only allows the customer to access the configuration through the 'User' account-which limits the available configuration options.

TWC units may be accessed through the 'Admin' account using the following credentials:

User Name - Last 8 characters of the Ubee Modem MAC Address
Password - c0nf1gur3m3

For example: If your Ubee Modem MAC Address is "1C:6D:CB:14:D6:4A"
Your 'Admin' credentials would be:
User Name - CB14D64A
Password - c0nf1gur3m3

It is very unlikely that the aforementioned credentials will work to log in to the 'Admin' account for BHN supplied units. But hey, its worth a shot. Right?

Hope this helps.

Forgot ip address and password


To re-enable the Console access requires the SW2900 series to be reset to its default settings via the WEB INTERFACE
- Web Interface
- Device >Configuration >Initialize To change the Default User "ADMIN" password it is necessary to use the Console connection
-Console Interface
-Once the unit has successfully booted and the prompt presented
-Enter "password" (without "")
-Enter "admin" when the system prompts for User
-Press the "Enter" key when the system prompts for "Old Password" (the ADMIN password was reset by the Web Interface commands)
-Enter "" when the system prompts for the New Password (where "" is the new product ADMIN password)
-Enter "" when the system prompts to confirm the New Password In order to complete the configuration it is necessary to save the configuration via the WEB INTERFACE
-Web Interface
-Device > Configuration > Save
Symptom:
SW2900 Baseline Switch - Default console access disabled following password change
From the web interface, the default user "admin" password is changed and console access is disabled
Cause:
When applying the new password, by default the service-type is set to "telnet". When applied, the default "terminal" setting is removed thus disabling console access.

How can I reset the passwork on my LG 32LD400 TV?


If you have access to the web admin interface...
All passwords can be changed in the User list (Share -> User). Click the User ID to change the password. Due to security reasons, passwords can only be changed in the web admin interface. If you forget the admin password, the password can only be reset by a service technician.
You can re-initalize the device (per instructions in the manual), but it will erase all data.

Establishing a password for a linksys router


Most Linksys routers can be accessed using your web browser by typing this into the address bar (Hook your computer into the router using an ethernet (network) cable):

192.168.1.1

Here are a few typical login passwords to try:

User: admin
Password: password

User: admin
Password: admin

User: (leave blank)
Password: admin

User: (leave blank)
Password: password

Once you are logged into the router, you can visit the settings page to change the login password, or the Wireless Security page to change the wifi password.

How do I access the router control panel?


The factory default User name is admin and the default Password is blank (empty). It is recommended that you change the admin password for security purposes. Please refer to Tools>Admin to change the admin password.

You need to download the user manual. ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/di614+/Manual/DI-614+_manual_06292005.zip

I could access the router log in page and then go to the status page but I cannot go to the advanced setup page. I would like to know the setup page address that should be like...


For user access enter the default user password user to view the status only. The
following window will appear.

Administrator Access

1 For administrator access enter the default admin password 1234 to configure the wizards
and the advanced features.
2 Click Login to proceed to a screen asking you to change your password or click Cancel
to revert to the default password.
3 If you entered the admin password, it is highly recommended you change the default
admin password! Enter a new password between 1 and 30 characters, retype it to
confirm and click Apply. Alternatively click Ignore to proceed to the main menu if you
do not want to change the password now.

This router has a user password to see the status and an administrator password to change settings. Please mark this as solved if this solves your problem. If not feel free to ask more questions :).

I got a used computer, previous owner unknown. It has a Lexmark 5000 printer installed. I do not have access to the administrator user password and this is preventing me from installing my Lexmark X4270...


There are workarounds and ways around the admin password and if you can get in and create another user profile with admin rights. You can google software to crack admin local Windows password to reveal it. There are also boot discs that can crack it instantly which actually deletes it and changes it something you want. The last resort is reinstalling the Windows OS.
