Freeserve password

  oldbeefer2 15:59 02 Sep 2008

My brother connects to freeserve (now orange, I think) using a modem. Since suffering a stroke a year ago, he has some difficulties remembering and frequently thinks he can't get on line because he has forgotten to connect the modem. I have a spare router which I want to install for him so he is always connected. The problem is I shall need his user name and password. No probs with the user name as it's his email address, but he can't remember the password (no probs with the modem, as the PW is 'saved'). Any easy solution, please?

SIW. click here. Get the free version, either with installer or standalone.
Run the program and look under Secrets.

Yes if he is using Outlook express SIW will show his username and password to log into the freeserve servers.

He is asked for username and password to connect using the modem. I shall need these same details to set up the Speedtouch router. Is this the info that I can get using SIW? He normally uses Outlook, but does have OE on his confuser as well. Thanks.

Yes these will be what you need to enter into the router.
