After updating the firmware on my Linksys router and changing the name and workgroup on my computer, I am unable to logon to my computer. I also went through the network wizard and did not put in a password for the administrator. The msg is: "The system could not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case. Make sure that Caps Lock is not accidentally on." I can't put in a password because I don't what it is since I didn't put one in and I have no idea what the domain is and there is no place to make this change in the login dialog box.

I've tried a couple of password crackers that were free downloads but I only get a msg that "NTDLR is missing" Press any key to restart. Back to square one -- can't log on. My 2000 CD doesn't appear to have a repair section; i.e., it will wipe everything off that doesn't come in 2000.

I am on my husband's computer which is also Win2000 Pro. Is there something I can copy from his computer that will let me use my computer?

Have you tried clicking the OK button then clicking enter? I know a friend who has the same problem and all he has to do is click ok then type his password

I've tried that and it doesn't work, plus I don't have a designated password in place. Thanks anyway.
