So its time to recover your lost password:

1. Right-click on the icon in your taskbar that represents your wireless Internet connection.
2. Select "Open Network and Sharing Center." 3. Click "Manage Wireless Networks."
4. Click the icon that represents the wireless Internet connection you are trying to recover the password for. Select "Properties" from the toolbar.
5. Select the "Security" tab. check the "Show Characters" box to display the password for that particular wireless Internet connection.

DOH! Sorry to hear that! Unless you can remember it, you'll need to reset your router to the factory defaults, which will unlock your password. Your router should have a tiny button on it you'd typically use a ball point pen to depress, which resets it to factory defaults.

Some routers, like linksys, don't have an actual user name so be sure you're leaving that blank. If it is a linksys, the default username is blank, and the password is admin. You'll want to change that quickly and I recommend writing your password in sharpie under your router if you're the forgetful type.

I've forgotten my password


There is no way to know your password. The only way around this is to use the recovery disc's and reload the operating system with a fresh copy, this removes the password you installed.
