your router manual for the default. Linksys often uses "Linksys" as the password and Belkin, "Admin" with no user name.

In reply to: need help here tell us the manufacturer and model number of your router.

For example: Linksys WRT54GS v4.0

As stated earlier, the router manufacturer's website has quick start and full manuals for your router model. That manual will tell you the default router password and everything else you need to know.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
