Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate x32, unknowm/4gig

On a friends computer, when connecting to my wireless router, it asks for both a username and a password. why is this? every time before on any other device it just asks for a password. it is setup with a wpa2psk password, but it dosnt have a username at all. i have tried without a username, with usernames like admin or user and nothing works. how do i get to the dialoug where it just wants the password, without needing a username

My friend is running windows 7 x32 with all of the latest updates. it is a custom built pc with a m-302 802.11g wireless pci adapter

My router is a wrt 160n v3 with default firmware

Try SSID as username and the encryption key as password.

Seems to me as a basic windows logon.
Tried your username and password?

Is there a drive mapped from another computer.
This may also cause the authentication window.

I didn't get the thing with the router.
To enter the routers setup, you simply have to open your favorite internet browser and type in the ip address of the router like this:
http://192.168.1.1
Then you'll get a login screen, where you have to enter the username (admin) and password.
But this logon screen does not look like the one, you posted.

How about trying a password finder?

Ophcrack http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

Or google for others.

You I got that.
Looks like you've mapped a drive and checked the "reconnect automatically at startup".
So if the computers shared folder is available, and the given username or password is wrong or missing, or the permission for that user is not granted, you'll get the logon screen to authenticate to the computer of the shared folder. The user must exist on the other computer.
Is there any drive listed in "My Computer" that has a red cross on it?

There are no drives with x's on them. is there somewhere i can check to see if it is trying to connect to a nonexistent drive?

You should get a list of former mapped drives, when you rightclick My Network Places and then click Disconnect Network Drive.
