Linksys E series routers can broadcast 2 wireless networks. First one is the main wireless network which is secured wireless network.
The second network is a guest network which will always show you unsecured.
It will never show you secured and you can not make it secured.
However it has a web based security.
Anyone can connect to the guest network but will not be able to access Internet without Guest access password.
In other words there is a security.
You can disable guest access also.

How can I unlock my pattern screen lock on my Sylvania SLTDVD9200 so I can sign in on my name.I use the guest account for now.

You would have to either:
Unlock using the same lock-patttern that was used to lock it,
or if , as it appears the unlock pattern is unknown / forgotten,
you would need to take it in to your cell-phone agent, usually with security proof that the phone is yours.
This may include proof of address, ID document, phone purchase invoice, etc.

Want to get my Cisco guest password

Open Cisco Connect then click Guest access. The password is displayed under the Password header.

To go to the Guest access option using Cisco Connect, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Select Guest access at the main screen of Cisco Connect

In the Guests access settings window, you can enable or disable the Allow guest access, change and check the password for the guest network, or change the number of Total guests allowed.

NOTE: The Guest network name is the main network's SSID with -guest as a suffix. If you want to change the guest network's name, you will need to change the main network's SSID.

Screen name on Hp 2000 says locked underneath it. Password tried too many times. Need to redo it with a new name and password

Not sure if this will work without some user's account being open, but try starting Task Manager. Press Ctrl/Alt/Delete. Press all 3 keys at the sme time. There should be a "reset password" option. But again, I don't know if you can do this unless a user is already signed in. If it doesn't work, the computer should have a "public" or "guest" account. When it wants your password, look for "change users". Click on that and select he guest, or public, or whatever it is labelled, account, and you'll be in the computer, but not in your owner's account. And if you try the task manager/change password from the guest account it may not let you do anything with your owner's account. If all else fails, call HP at 800-474-6836.

My laptop has been signed out and wont let me logg on

Few different ways to get back in;
Start in Safe Mode (F8 at startup) and access the admin account by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and typing in Administrator for user name and leaving the password blank,
2) download Hirens Boot CD and use the NT offline password changer to remove the password for the account
3) use another admin account to change the password
and finally 4 ) add to domain from guest account and take over the admin account from there (not going into step by step for that one)

Step 1:
The first thing you want to do is check to see if you can get into the computer the easy way. Try signing on as a guest. If there is no "guest" option try typing in: guest then press enter. If this fails, no need to worry, just move on to the next step. If this step fails then just Hit ctrl + alt + del. Under the username put the word "administrator" and put nothing under password. Most likely this will work, since there is a secret administrators account in every computer. If by any chance this does not work: continue to the next step... If you are on the computer already and need a way to access the computer in the future without knowing the password try this: Go to the start menu, then to "control panel", click on "user accounts"... Make another account with your own password to it! This way you can sign in with your own user name and there's no need in knowing the password. The downside to this though is that the computer often displays all usernames once you sign on. Restart the computer and find out, on some computers it doesn't! This last step is a bit drastic, but you can change the password on the computer given that you are already signed on. You don't have to know the password in order to change it.

A guest used her laptop in my home. connected to my router and now theres a security lock preventing me from signing on

Did your guest perhaps log in to your router and make some changes? If so, I recommend you press the "reset" button on the router and re-set it up.
