    Let's deal with the last question first -- NO, there is no way that you can find the current Administrator password. If there was, it wouldn't be very secure, would it?



    Also, realize that you are probably logging in as a general user with (maybe) some admin rights; you are most probably NOT the real Administrator.



    This will probably severely limit what you can do in terms of setting and changing networking parms.



    If your PC was setup by a technician, and it's your PC (meaning, you own it), the technician is obligated to suppy you the Administrator password. Otherwise, you will need to have the technician setup the networking stuff for you.
