1) The password you are trying is wrong.  Could the CAPS LOCK be on?  Here is the Microsoft site where you can change your password.  Refer to your registration documentation.  Do you have a confirmation email with your email address and password?

Guy Recommends: The Free IP Address Tracker (IPAT) Free IP Tracker

Calculating IP Address ranges is a black art, which many network managers solve by creating custom Excel spreadsheets.  IPAT cracks this problem of allocating IP addresses in networks in two ways:

For Mr Organized there is a nifty subnet calculator, you enter the network address and the subnet mask, then IPAT works out the usable addresses and their ranges.  For Mr Lazy IPAT discovers and then displays the IP addresses of existing computers.
