Do you have any devices that are already connected to the WiFi? If yes, perhaps there is a way to read the password from them.

If not, the only way is reset the router to factory settings.

Be careful, once you reset it, you will have to setup your router from the beginning or you will not have Internet access.

SOURCE: I forgot my 2wire477 wifi connection when I go to

Hi najata59232,

If you haven't changed the password the WPA password key is printed on the unit. It's underneath, look for the 2wire router label. There will be set of braces [] with 10 characters inside. That is your wireless password if you haven't changed it. Just let me know if you have further inquiry so I can help you.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I have no idea what my Wi-Fi password is, so can't activate the Kindle. This is my 4th Kindle; I bought the others with no help, but have no record of Wi-fi password.


The wifi password is the password installed in the router that allows any and all wireless devices to connect to your wireless network. Unless this Kindle is the only wireless device you have, then you probably know the password, since it was used on all the other devices as well. Even if you don't know it, you may have it. If the router was from the ISP, and you didn't change anything, the wifi password may be written on the base of the router. If you DID change the password and forgot it, as long as you can access the router setup,. you can go in and create a new wifi password.

I forgot my phone lock password


If you have an Android phone, the only way you can use the phone now is by performing a factory reset through Android Device Manager on Google. But for this, your phone should be connected to the Internet via mobile data or WiFi. Android Device Manager will list all your devices connected with your Google account. Select the device and click on Factory Reset. This will wipe the entire data on the phone including the password lock.

I bought my son a 7inch Nobis tablet for his bday and he forgot the password what do I do?


When you forgot your password and exceeded the tries you can enter it with, your account will be locked and will have to be unlocked using your internet connection (WiFi or data connection). Your device will ask you for your gmail and password. Once able to provide, they will ask which you prefer to reset and it is done. Unfortunately, not everyone is connected when the account is locked. You will have to do the following when this happens: - turn off device - press the following: volume up/down or both power button home button (if any) OR press the reset button/hole -wait for a logo to appear before letting go -choose recovery mode -choose wipe data/factory reset -choose yes -device will restart or will ask you to restart and confirm.

I forgot my password and now I cannot connect with


if you need to recover a used wifi key, its not possible from within windows as they are all encrypted when added, you need to search for a wifi key recovery software, there are some that recover and back up keys used on the machine, so i would start there :)
