I forgot my WIFI Router password.

Any ideas?  If I do a factory reset to the default settings, will I have to reconfigure all the computers?  Is there a way to get the password from the network computers?  From the Network card?

Hi leslie,

I dont know this is your question answer or  not but still sharing my thoughts.

Go to any computer which is already connected to Wireless.

1. Click on the wifi icon and it will show you all the open networks. Click on the one you're looking for and click properties.

Then go under the password dots and click "show characters".

2. When your laptop is connected to the wifi, type the routers ip  address. To find your routers ip address, go to command prompt, type ipconfig, and it will be displayed as default gateway.

So type it in on the address bar, and press enter. A  page should open up, you need to find the wireless section. There, you  can find it, or you might have to go to a wireless security section.

I don't think you could do

I don't think you could do that.

Also, when you factory reset to the default settings, I believe you would have to reconfigure it.

I also forgot my WiFi

I also forgot my WiFi password, but I have used the SmartKey WiFi Password Recovery to hack my own WiFi password, and it do work for me. I think you can get to know more about it and solve your doubt from it.
