How to Find your Wireless Password

Over the years we found many cases where customers need to know there wireless password and forget since this password is not used often. The only time this password is needed is to set up new devices in the wireless network , or to upgrade the firmware.

Where are some tips to help recover or display or wireless setting.

Some wireless router manufacturers set a default security key or password which may be on the bottom of the router, or in the documentation.

If there are devices already setup on the wireless network you can discover the setting from the device.

If the first two options can't be done you may have to log into the router using a PC/laptop and a Ethernet cable connected to LAN port onto the router.


Open a web browser.

Enter the IP address for your wireless router into the search bar (for example, 192.168.1.1). Look for your router’s default IP address in your router documentation or online.

Enter the user name and password to open your router’s configuration web page. Most router documentation includes the default user name and password.

On the configuration web page, look for a wireless or wireless settings option.

Now, look for a security or wireless encryption setting. The security key (sometimes called a network key, a pass phrase, or a network password) should be listed nearby.
