You can try logging onto the router wireless interface and looking at the wi-fi configuration screen. Some routers display the password in clear, If this is not the case or you have forgotten the password to log onto the router then you will need to do a hard reset and start again.

The routers manual will tell you how to do all this.

✔ Best Answer
Google the model of your router for info, re how to access the interface.
Your wireless password will be displayed within the relevant menu.

Access to the interface is via your browser.
The initial access address is usually along the lines of; 192.168.?? (last two numbers vary).

Easier still - as long as you have a wireless PC already connected to your wireless router:
Download Nirsoft Wireless Key Viewer.
Choose the version below, according to your system.

Unzip it and run the application.

Voila! There's your key

On some newer routers the wifi pass phrase (or pass key), assuming that's what you mean, is on a sticker under or behind the router.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
