Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
Unfortunately in most routers, you cannot actually find the existing password. If you have access to the router configuration, you can set a new Wifi password.
Using a wired connection to the router, you will need to find the "default gateway" of your computer. To do that, go to Start>Run, type "cmd" (without quotes) and hit OK. Type "ipconfig" without quotes and hit enter. It will give you the IP address and default gateway of your computer. Now, go to Internet Explorer or your favorite browser and type the default gateway address into the address bar (no WWW in front of it). Hit Enter on that. If it pops up with a username and password on that, you'll need to get that from whoever set up your wireless router. If it was you and you don't know the password, you'll have to reset the router back to factory defaults by holding the reset button on the physical router itself, while you plug the power in (that may not be the procedure - consult your router documentation for resetting to factory defaults).
If you did know that web password, you can get in and click on something like "Wireless Settings" and look for "Encryption" or something similar, and there will be a place to enter a new password.
