I have two Lenovo ideapads. One is in constant use. I tried to get online with #2, and my wireless network is apparantly "password XXXXX" How do I take the protection off, because I have no idea what the password XXXXX?
OS: Windows Vista; Browser: AOL
Looked for a way to "unsecure" my wireless network to no avail.
Hello and thanks for choosing Just Answer.
To find your wireless password XXXXX the following instructions on the computer that IS connected to the wireless network:
1. Download the WirelessKeyView tool from http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview.zip.
2. Unzip the tool by right clicking the file you downloaded and choosing Extract.
3. After extracting you will see 3 files, one of which is called WirelessKeyView. Double click this file and you will see a list of all saved wireless passwords saved on your computer. Record the one that is listed for your home network and use that password XXXXX your second ideaPad.
Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions!
