Recover ADSL connection password

  expertec 20:13 02 Aug 2006

Hey folks, any chance of some help on this one?

I'm reformatting and installing windows for a friend, but he's forgotten his password to connect... is there any way to recover this before I wipe the hard drive?

I've seen some password revealers and stuff online, but they all seem to cost... is there no way to do it for free?

He could phone his ISP and ask.

Perhaps he kept the email telling him what it is?

Yes. E-mail the ISP.

I know, but surely he can go use someone else's internet connection?

Or if he still has an analogue dialup modem installed.

Make new connection, enter the dialup number: 08451 121212.

The user ID is anything you like eg. bloggs and the password is also anything you like eg. 1234565 etc...

He can then log on to his ISPs website and ask from there.
