Good afternoon im hoping you might be able to help me. I had received a new wifi network name an password idont know how to change from the old one to the new one


Hi Judith,

you need to login to the router admin page to be able to do that. you will have to connect the computer to the router with the help of an ethernet cable to do that and have the ip address of the router and the old password.

call 1-877-805-1027 for step by step assistance.

Hello every body! I have a problem with Password of Dell Latitude E6400, last time i set Fingerprint as a security, now i want to disable this, but I Can't do it because it report that the old password is...


Ouch, Sorry about the issue with the password.The problem is, your fingerprint reader is working fine, but windows is not letting you in because you cannot authenticate yourself. Unfortunately, I do not know of any free way to retrieve your passwords from windows. You might be able to get support from Dell customer care, because this isnt really a hardware issue, but a software issue.

How to retrieve a forgotten password. I can use CTRL+ALT+DELETE and user name comes up Compaq_Administrator but I don't know the password. Any ideas????? Desktop is a Compaq Presario SR2011WM with...


I used this software to create a boot-CD for resetting a password. (This is to my knowledge also the only one that works with Windows Vista.)

You should also read this article about the process. Don't forget that you might loose especially encrypted files which are stored under that username!

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Can you please help me set up password protection for my Lynksys wireless? Everyone in my neighborhood is using my service and it is slowing down my access.......


http://192.168.0.1/

Remember this address and/or write it down, this address is the common address for your lynksys.

When a popup comes, asking for username/password.
Username: Admin or if it dont work try Superuser
password: password

Then look for Wireless Setting > WPA-PSK(Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) > Then on the bottom should say security passphrase/password (Type in something you will remember or only you will know) >Save settings/Apply and exit.

Now since you've changed your wifi, you need to manually delete and search for your wifi agian since the settings are changed.

If your using Vista: (64bit)

Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network > Highlight your Wireless connection ( Select Remove) > Add > Then go through the process of finding your wireless connection and you magically got back your protected wireless.

Hope this works.

We just got wireless internet this past year at our house and when my dad set it up he forgot to write down the password which lets you onto the internet. So now we are able to log on through the computer...


to set the wireless settings you need to use a computer that is connected to your router or the computer that is working on your router wirelessly.

access the setup page of your router using IE on the address bar type the ip of your router, by default it is 192.168.1.1, username=admin and password=password, once your on the setuppage go to wireless settings option on the left pane. you will be able to see the wireless security there.


the reason why you dont know the wireless security for the old computers its because once you typed the security key in the computer will remembers it and save it on the system.

Forgot the password/code/security to let somebody else onto my linksys home wireless network. Don't remember how to do any of it or retrieve the security code to access the secure wireless network


Hi,

The easiest would be to reset the router using the small recessed button at the back of the unit. Performing a full hard reset (pressing reset more than 10 seconds) would clear the password. Of course, this action would also clear all other configurations and settings reverting the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
