i got the acer aspire series laptop, and some how i forgot my password to logon as administrator to view my router settings and such.

you know when you open internet, you type in your ip adress and the logon window pops up? thats the password i forgot.

is there anyway to manualy recover this password? or do i have to spend all day trying to reach someone on the dlink help line???

It's not clear what password you're trying to recover. Is it Windows password on your laptop? If so, tell us what Windows version you got.

Or is it the Dlink switch/router password? What model number? For a start, try pressing the reset pinhole for 10 seconds, then wait 30 seconds for the rebooting, login with username 'admin' and blank password.

I have a program called Password Renew for XP based systems v1.0-RC2,
I also have not used it but if you want I can email it to you or MSN


Password Renew is designed for fixing broken systems, or restoring forgotten passwords.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY

Worst case just reset the router with the little button on the back (It might be on the bottom) Hold it in for about 10 seconds and it will reset the router to default settings, so you will have to redo any wireless security settings. Which should take about 5 mins anyway.

there is a boot disk out on the internet, running Linux script that allows you to change your administrator password .

Do a search online for it,
google something like

Administrator password boot disk

It works a treat..

Yes, but that is for Windows passwords, not the password for the router settings, and that is what worksoftplayhard needs.

too much smoke!

didnt read ya post properly.


Ive never come across anything to reset a password on a router box before..
but ive never had to................. maybe telnet into it or something?

just reset it and re-do the settings.
easiest way i say.

The linux password hack found at "frozentech.com" has recovered every password I have asked of it, except the Bios.

Just FYI: Sala's Password Renew is designed ONLY to work in the PE environment - it will not work from within XP.
