HI,
You need to connect the computer to the router using the network cable , then access the router to reterive the same. If you donnot have the spare cable. then you need to reset the router, so that it can connect without the password.
Kinldy give the model and manufacturer of the router.


Thanks

I wan't to use the signal from my router on my desktop for my tabler , But I forgot my password ?


If you have a laptop or other device which has previously accessed the wireless router, you should be able to retrieve the router security key (password) from that device.

If that device is running Windows Vista/7/8, you can read the security key directly. In the system tray (lower right corner), click on the Wi-Fi signal icon, then right-click on the entry for your router, and select "Properties". When the properties box appears, the security key will be hidden; to display it, place a check in the "Show Characters" box. (See diagrams 1&2, below.)

Alternatively, you can install a software program on a computer that has accessed the router, in order to retrieve the security key. My suggestion is "WirelessKeyView", a Windows freeware program from Nirsoft. See: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html That will display all of the router security keys stored in that computer, under the "Key ASCII" column. (See diagram 3, below.)

Tip to retrieve if you forget the wireless key of your router


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen you can see the wireless key

If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is WPA Preshared key

Thanks

How to change my password... i forgot my password now i cant share my connection good thing my iphone remmemvers the router


I assume you previously enabled security on your router, so you are now trying to retrieve the security key so that other computers can make connections via that router.

The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router. It may be available in the web-based configuration page for the router (if you are able to access that).

Alternative, you should be able to retrieve the security key, by installing some additional (free) software on any computer that has connected
to the router.

Please follow the steps in order to retrieve the security code:

1. Click Start \ Run \ type cmd and hit enter
2. In the black window type ipconfig and hit enter.
3. Note down the default gateway and close this window.
4. Open the web browser and type the default gateway and hit enter.
5. If you have not changed the default password then type admin as password and leave the username blank.
6. In the router setup page click Wireless and then click Wireless Security.

You can use the key to connect the wireless devices with the router.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Forgot D-Link 1310 wireless password - how do I retrieve it


What password? Are you referring to the WEP or WPA-PSK password? If yes, I would like to inform you that no one could give you the exact WEP or WPA key. Even if you check the utility of the router.

What you need to do is to reset the router to factory default and then reconfigure the router. That's the only way that you could do in order to set a new password.

Have a good evening!

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck
