A wireless router password wont be recovered unless you still have the password you can enter or if the router is unmanaged without an admin password.
another option would be resetting your router to be able to get through the router and assign a new password.
here's how: you need to directly connect your computer or laptop wired going to your router not using a wireless one. then reset, make a new network configuration and put your admin password later. dont forget to backup your router config. in a folder together with your password so the nextime you forgot any thing or change anything. just look back to your folder where you put your backup config. and password.
Which password you are looking for? If you are looking for wireless network password then you will need to access the router setup page and check the wireless settings. IF you are looking for password to access router settings then default password of Linksys router is admin.
Are you looking for the router password or password to connect to the wireless network?

Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ? Is there any computer online using the router. If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

For wireless or to manage the router?
If you forgot the wireless key password, you should be able to get into the router through a web interface and get or reset the wireless password.
If you don't remember the password to manage the router itself, it should have a "Reset" or "Go Local" button the back of the unit. Press and hold that for about 5-10 seconds. This will set the unit back to factory defaults and you should be able to log in again to set up your wireless settings.
All you need to do is log into the router usually with the pc that is attached to the router (wired) by typing into the run command box http://192.168.1.1 Depending on the brand of router you'll either put in admin and no password or admin for the password or admin and password for password. Once in the router go to the wireless security tab and you can see the network key. Hope this helps
