You either need to access it from a wired connection - some routers display the password in plain text. If not then you need to reset the router (there will usually be a small recessed button to do this but best check the manual for the actual procedure) - this will remove any security so you can set it up from scratch. Note resetting will also remove any connection settings if it's a modem/router so make sure your know what they are.

Try following:

- Log on to wireless router management page and locate the WPA-PSK key in wireless settings section.

- If your laptop has been connected to this wireless network before, try to use this wireless key finder to locate the key.

Hope this helps.

As I know this tool can only recover the wireless encryption key if you use Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP or WLAN AutoConfig service in Windows Vista/7, so you should try to use this tool on the computer that meets this requirement and has connected to your wireless network before.

Hope this helps.
