Windows 10: See Wireless Network Security Key Password in Windows 10
I added the code in your post to help you see how to add code using the # icon in the post tool editor.
I realised that NoScript was hiding the editing tools, hence why I couldn't see how to add [CODE] tags. Duh! All sorted now and I've amended my previous post so it shows my latest effort.
Many thanks to you Brink as always.
Although this is a very useful tutorial, it does not answer my problem.
I used to use a wifi router which I replaced before doing a clean install of Windows 10.
As I have never connected to it since installing Win 10 the profile is not stored on the PC, and I cannot remember the wifi password for it -, nor can I find the card with the 'default' settings so doing a factory reset won't help.
I would like to use it again and wonder if anyone knows any 'magic' way of finding the password from the information stored on it.
use hardware reset button on old router to reset it
and set again the old router with proper values
if is yours .
Thanks Oneless - but that's the problem.
The router had device specific wifi and admin passwords set by the supplier and they supplied a card with the information on it and I can't find the card, so if I do a hardware reset I'm no further forward.
if is a pay service
and if you pay for it
and the contract is still alive
they must provide you
all data you need .
otherwise no MAGIC here.
all this things are made for protect the owner.
when anyone will can find neighbors password
the world will change in bad.
You should be able to using the brand and model number of the router to look up on Google the manual for the default log in user name and password.
