Is there any way to get it?  I tried this...

http://www.wikihow.com/Find-Your-WiFi-Password-when-You-Forgot-It

 

 

And the CMD one is stopped because the admin/password is not admin/admin or admin/1234

I tried the WirelessKeyView and it comes up blank, no info at all.

The

Windows 7: Select Properties and then check the Show Characters box. Doing this will display the passcode.

There is no Show Characters box

 

Is there any way of getting it?  Or could I reset my wireless modem some how so I can just redo the password?

 

Oh crap I just realized some thing...  My PC is hooked up by cable.  My mom's laptop, Nook, and my PS3 are wireless.  No wonder I can't use my PC to figure out the wireless password because it isn't hooked up by wireless.  Wow duh, just gotta figure out how to find it on her laptop.(She got a new nook and can't connect it because we can't remember the password she used)

 

Ok, got it, done, you guys can delete this.  I swear it was literally like a lightbulb moment.  "Wait, my PC is hooked up by a cable, not wireless, so that's why the wirelesskeyfinder isn't working.  As soon as I tried it on my mom's laptop?  Bingo!

Hmmm, my wife was complaining that our internet wasn't working the whole day yesterday while I was at work. That little switch that turns on the wireless is very effective at disabling it also.... lol

 

Amazing tech moments in amazing lives...
