wpa-psk ascii 7 053b071c325b411c9d

The 7 tells you that the presharedkey is encypted.


wpa-psk ascii 0 (then the passphase without qoutes)


wpa-psk ascii 0 securewirelessnetwork

If you have service password-encryption on your router (which you should have) you will see the key when you type it but it will be encrypted afterwards.

Yes, Wegmans and Nicks are key here!!!
