If You Forget Your Router's Password

By June 11, 2008

Follow me on:

One of the most frustrating problems in home networking is forgetting the password of your broadband router. Judging by how often I'm asked for solutions to this problem, it happens frequently.

Unfortunately, the only practical remedy requires resetting your router to its factory defaults (which sets the password to a specific name picked by the manufacturer). Details vary depending on the router model but typically involve pushing and holding down a reset button on the unit. Consult the manufacturer's documentation for specifics.

Gravity then causes water to be under pressure
as it flows from the elevated tanks to consumers.
Advantages to APRV ventilation include: decreased airway pressures,
decreased minute ventilation, decreased dead-space ventilation, promotion of spontaneous breathing, almost 24 hour a day alveolar recruitment,
decreased use of sedation, near elimination of neuromuscular blockade,
optimized arterial blood gas results, mechanical restoration
of FRC (functional residual capacity), a positive effect
on cardiac output (due to the negative inflection
from the elevated baseline with each spontaneous breath), increased organ and tissue
perfusion, potential for increased urine output due to increased renal perfusion.
