    I have some problems with administration
    i want to install a router to it but it keeps asking for a password the password that i used for it is 1996
    when i type that in it tells me that the password is wrong :S
    Its a dualboot with windows 7
    do someone know a way to fix this?

    Most routers now have a code or serial number that you can enter when you try and connect to it, so that would work if your wifi password isnt, if its your sudo password then firstly change it from 1996 and secondly I dont know how easy that is to bypass/retrieve

    It wants the password you type to log in to the profile NOT your wireless key.

    You should type the password you type when you open ubnutu . The one that you set when you first installed ubnutu . It should no longer come up once you type it once .

    You shouldn't make your password your birth year... (just joking dude, it's perfectly fine to do that)

    Ubuntu is fairly consistent when it asks for passwords; I have never seen ubuntu say it wants one password but mistakened it for another. Are you sure it is not asking the password for master passwords? I haven't used ubuntu in ages but if a screen pops up when you are trying to log into your router, it's probably trying to access your saved passwords (which requires a password). Otherwise, it is trying to access your password to make changes to settings in which case would be your ubuntu login password. However, if you are trying to change router settings, it's not making any computer changes, so I don't know why it would be asking for your ubuntu password.

    It basically wants your login password for ubuntu, if its not working its not 1996, Ubuntus pretty consistant with asking for passwords and if your really stuck just entering your login password your no-where near ready for Ubuntu and I advise you to go back to the more user friendly windows.
