The wireless password is set in the router. You need to log onto your routers management interface and go to wireless configuration. The wireless password may be displayed there. Some Routers just display a row of asterisks for security reasons.

If you cannot determine the password from the router you will need to configure the wireless from scratch allocating a new password. Use WPA2 if available or WPA but not WEP for security. WEP is weak and can be easily hacked. WPS2 is best and most modern devices support WPA2.

✔ Best Answer
Reset the router & create a new SSID & password. Check the router manual or the manufacturer's website for instructions. There should be a reset button on the back or underside of the router. After the reset, you'll have to connect to the router via an ethernet cable, open a browser window, enter the router's IP address, then login to the router settings to reconfigure it.
