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.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password


Symptoms:


You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network



Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.


If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.


To view or reset a wireless network password:


Launch your Internet browser and type http://www.routerlogin.net in or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 the address field for your browser. Enter the router's username and password.
The default username is admin, the default password is password.
From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router administration interface, select Set Up > Wireless Settings
Note: On some routers this option will be under BASIC > Wireless.
From the center screen, you find the current wireless security settings under the Security Options heading.


If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.


Read more about Securing your Wireless Network.
If you cannot log into your router:


- If you were routed to the NETGEAR website or getting the "Page cannot be displayed" message when trying to login to router, make sure you are connected to the NETGEAR router. Check your wired connection and make sure cable is securely plugged in and LED is on. If wireless adapter is on, make sure you are NOT connected on a different wireless network.


- Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default access information to reconfigure your router settings. NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

I have a new lap top which is recognising the wireless network and then asking for a network security key. How do I find this?


The network security key is essentially a password that was setup to control access to your network. Presumably, when you set it up you gave it a password that you could remember, but not so obvious that people could easily guess. If you've forgotten or lost the password, you can reset the router by using a paperclip and holding the reset button for about 10-15 seconds. Once you reset the router, it will be restored to its original factory defaults and you can then setup again your wireless networking.

I have a WGR 614 Netgear and have forgotten the password and need this to connect for a Wi-Fi, how can I access my password?


If you have the ID/password to login to the router, use them to login to the router, and then view the current password.

If you have "lost" that ID/password, you need to do a "factory-reset" to reset the router to the "default" ID/password. Then, use these "default" values to login to the router, and then to reconfigure both the "wired" and "wireless" network-adapters, and set a new password for your new wireless network.

Forgotten the security key number/password and need it to set up a wireless laptop Thanks Ken


Use a computer wired to the router to access the setup page and get the network key.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

Once on the setup page of the router, go to Wireless -> Security.

You will see the network key here.

I hope this helps!

If you dont know the password or have forgotten it, just remove the power and hold the reset in under the bottom of the unit in, reconnect the power and count for 7 sec. lights will flash and the password will be default again. It resets it back to factory settings.

Have have an i phone trying to access the wi fi at my home and i have forgotten my password. is there anything i can do to get on the network?


You will need to login to the management page of the Router.

EG: http://192.168.1.1

From there go into the wireless settings and you should be able to see or change the password form there.

If you have forgotten the management admin password you will most likely need to do a full reset on your router. There is usually a button on the bottom or side that can be pushed with a Pen. However before doing this make sure you know what your ISP username / passwords and settings are as you will need to set these up again.
