Question about Computers & Internet
What Operating System are You Using?
For a Mac:
Launch "Keychain Access" it is in the utilities folder
Look for items with the kind of "AirPort Network Password"
Find the one with the same name as your network (SSID)
Double Click It
Then click "Show Password"
Enter your login password at the prompt, and click "allow"
Not really a non-overcomplicated way to do this, you are best off resetting the router:
if those dont work:
1. unplug all cables from router, including power.
2. use paper clip to hold reset button
3. plug in power ONLY
4. wait 15 seconds
5. release reset button
6. re-do the setup for the router, setting a new password in the process

If it is the password for the router's wireless connection that you forgot, the only option is to reset the router to factory default condition, then re-enter all you configuration information (including the wireless password), and then change the password in the other computers to match.
There is a "Reset" switch that requires a paper clip or similar item to depress it (with the router on) and hold for about 10 seconds, then release. This puts the router back into its factory default state.
Hope that's helpful.
