Are you listed as the administrative contact on the domain and/or is the
domain registered in your name? If so, is the registered email address
something you can access? If so, there is a web form under Network
Solution ("forgot your password" link) that will email the information to
the email address on record. If the email address is not correct, try
calling the 800 number (look under the "Help" section for the particular
800 number to call for account problems). There's methods by phone/paper
to get the username and password sent to the administrative contact and
registered domain owner.

If you are not the registered owner or administrative contact and you
manage by some miracle to get Network Solutions to believe you actually
own the domain and get them to transfer it to you, could you email me how
you did it? I'm still going through a similiar headache with a game I
inheritted from some people who, without thinking, let the original game
hosting company register the game's domain with the company as the owner
and admin contact. The company is now defunct and I've been trying on and
off for a year to get the domain ownership transferred to me.
