save username password in putty to auto-login

For some versions of Putty it’s as simple as:
putty.exe root@example.com -pw mypasswordforexamplecom
For those using Windows, you can simply create a shortcut and pass in those parameters. For example:
  1. Create a shortcut on desktop to putty.exe
  2. Rename the shortcut to “PuTTY – example.com”
  3. Right-click shortcut and choose Properties
  4. Modify the target similar to: “C:\Program Files\PuTTY\putty.exe” user@example.com -pw password
  5. You can also use IP Address of host in place of domain host name
  6. Click OK
Otherwise, you need to use a public key as explained here : “Creating and Copying Your Key-Pair in PuTTY SSH Client”.

The Rest Button on a Linksys Router

To reset the router

While the back of your router might look different, the reset button is usually clearly marked. To reset the router to the default password, insert something thin–like a pencil point–and depress the red button. Hold that for a few seconds. The password for your Linksys router should have reverted to its default.
Try accessing it from a machine that is plugged directly into it. The default address is usually http://192.168.1.1. When you gain access to the router then you can change the password to any word of your choice.
