How come in my router I have a password set to ten characters, but when I go to profile in xp there's a default password set to 8 characters that connects to my router?

Whats point of having a default password on router if theres one on windows???

Can anyone explain?

XP often "masks" the length of passwords by showing a different number of "dots" from the actual number of characters in the password. Don't be fooled into thinking the the password saved in XP is only 8 characters long.
