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?
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD.

Change your account to an admin account or contact the admin for your system. To change your account to an admin account follow these steps: go to your control panel and select user accounts. On windows 7 you can just type "user accounts" in the search bar in your start menu. From there, select change your account type, and change it to Admin. If you are set as a standard account by your systems administrator, you will need their password to do so.
boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights. if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.
You must have administrator rights to be able to install any program or game on your computer. It may mean that the user account that you are using is either a guest acocunt or an account with limited access.
Try these steps to change your log in
1) go to the control panel
2) Select User Accounts/User Account
3) Log in as the administrator and enter the password to switch accounts
Or you can log off from your current user and relog in using the admin account. If you do not know the password, it is better to inform the admin that you have to install a game so he/she will do it for you.
