Question about PC Desktops
If you didn't have the opportunity to write down your wireless security passkey/phrase previously, you should still be able to obtain it by accessing your wireless router's main menu. This is normally done by visiting one of the following websites from a computer that is already connected to the wireless network, or is hard-wired into the router itself:
Please keep in mind that the default address you'll need to visit may vary depending on your router model, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.
Once you've gotten to this page, you should be prompted to provide a user name and password to access the router's main menu. This default user name and password are generally provided in the owner's manual as well (or in documentation given to you by your ISP if you had that company set up your network), unless you have made any changes to these in the past.
After you’ve signed in, you should be able to find your wireless network passkey/phrase under an option named something similar to “Wireless Settings” or “Wireless Security.”
It is important to remember however, that any changes made while in the router’s main menu (intentional or accidental) can have a direct impact on every device currently connected to the wireless network. If you’re not sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your ISP or local technical support agent for more information.
Hope this helps you out.
