Okay, I'm wired to my router right now. I have a wireless adapter but I don't remember my wireless password and I can't log in or reset the router due to someone else being logged in and the router being in a locked room and a different computer is logged in it atm. Any ideas on how to go about this one? xD

Hi

Okay, I'm wired to my router right now.

Your router? Why would your router be in a locked room that you don't have access to? Why would someone else be logged in to your router?
If you have a cable connection why do you want to connect by wireless?
Are you sure you don't want to hack into a router that isn't yours? :thumbsup:
Steve

The router IS mine. It just happens to be under my dad's control atm. And I can't remember what we set. All I know is that it was WEP. >.> If it wasn't mine, how could I be wired to it? :flowers:

Unless the router has the option to "show characters" in place of asterisk's where it displays the key, you can't.

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass the Administrator password.
