The password should be stored in your niece's laptop, or any other computer which has connected to that router.

If that computer has Windows 7, there is a built-in function to display the password. Go to:
Start > Control Panel > Network & sharing > Manage wireless
That will being up a list of routers. Find the correct one, right-click and select "Properties".

That will bring up an info box for that router. Select the "Security" tab, The security key (password) will be hidden behind asterisks. Place a check in the box for "Show characters". That will display the password


If the computer which has connected to the router has an older operating system (Vista or Windows XP), then you may not have that built-in password display feature. But you may still be able retrieve the password by installing some specialized software.

Here are two suggested free software programs to display wireless passwords:

How can i find the security key to my hp computer


If you mean the Windows User password then -
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

I wan't to use the signal from my router on my desktop for my tabler , But I forgot my password ?


If you have a laptop or other device which has previously accessed the wireless router, you should be able to retrieve the router security key (password) from that device.

If that device is running Windows Vista/7/8, you can read the security key directly. In the system tray (lower right corner), click on the Wi-Fi signal icon, then right-click on the entry for your router, and select "Properties". When the properties box appears, the security key will be hidden; to display it, place a check in the "Show Characters" box. (See diagrams 1&2, below.)

Alternatively, you can install a software program on a computer that has accessed the router, in order to retrieve the security key. My suggestion is "WirelessKeyView", a Windows freeware program from Nirsoft. See: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html That will display all of the router security keys stored in that computer, under the "Key ASCII" column. (See diagram 3, below.)

I have recently had internet problems and now my laptop is unable to work off my router. My internet support help told me that the security key was changed. I don't know how that would have happened. How...


Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router.
Step 4: Click on Wireless--->Wireless Security to view the Security type and the Key.

Forgot my security password (network key)I need to


Logon to your router from your computer using your browser and going to http://192.168.1.2/. If it wants a username, the default username is blank and the default password is either blank or "password".


The Belkin management tool will come up. From there, go into your security and look to see if your passphrase is visible. If it is, you're good to go. If not, you can change it on that page save it and close out.
Don't forget to change the passphrase on any wireless devices you are using connected to the Belkin wireless router.

Forgotten Password


when booting after the post (beep) press the F8 key and load in safe mode. from there try and login as Administrator, 99% of computers have no password for that login. if you have the welcome screen just click on it, if you have the network login type in "Administrator"

from there you can goto the control panel access the user accounts and change/remove the passwords (this is based on the idea your computer is running xp/vista...based on data from hp i'm going to guess XP is what your running)
