Can't discover my wifi passowrd!!

Specs: Windows Xp
First of all sorry for my english, i'm not from england :)
I have a Windows Xp computer that is connected via Wi-Fi with a WPA pass. I need to retrieve this password, unfortunately i forget where i put the paper with it! :(
How can i retrieve my password? I tried "wirelesskeyview" but it show me only a "hex" pass.
I'd to see the original password not the hex one because i need to connect another pc.
The matter is that if i translate the hex code in a normal one, with one of the many tool i discovered on the net, the pass is incorrect!!
HELP ME PLEASE

Somewhere on the router their is a tiny pinhole that you push in to reset the router to its original factory condition. So look up your model and find out what the default login and password are and then reset your router. You can then make up a new code.

You need to push the pinhole and hold it for a few seconds. Five seconds should do it.

try and be clearer. We aren't going to help you decrypt or remember the old password so forget that thought. What you need to do is go into the router settings and set yourself back up with one you know again. The router will require you login. Do you remember how to login to your router??? The router itself will have a default username and password to get in ( and I do not mean the wireless password). Soooo, if you did not change them they will be the same as last time and getting into the router will be easy. Now you go into wireless settings part of the router and give yourself a new WPA or preferrably WPA2 password to get on the wireless portion of the router. If you cannot access the router, the reset button, hold it in for atleast 10 seconds, a quick push doesn't usually do it. The default login to your router I can't be more help on because you have not provided much useful information about the router. What make and model of router do you have? If the router is reset and you have an ISP who requires a PPPOE connection (also requiring a username and password) you will need to redo that connection setting, if your router seems to get you on-line just fine without changing any settings than you probably do not have a PPPOE connection.

So there is a username and password to login to the router

And a password to gain access to the wireless portion of the router(your wifi network)


After you are in the wireless router settings you can change the wireless password, which has nothing to do with the router login username and password, but you cannot change the password for the wireless without first logging into your router! I only suggest the reset if you cannot get into the router itself, forgot the password you used or what have you. The reset will change everything back to default which you can then look up online (while you still are online)...you would look in your book or online manual for the default login and password.

Do you know how to login to the router settings? You need to be connected to the router via an ethernet cable, then open Internet Explorer & enter the router's IP address. You've told us absolutely nothing about the router so here's a list of default IP addresses, user names & passwords:

Once you get into the router settings, you can either retrieve or change the wireless password. If what you're looking for isn't in the above list, try the manufacturer's website or router user manual. You might also want to look at the underside of the router, the default info might be printed on a label.
