this site says this download is unsafe
Your antivirus may be blocking it unfortunately. We can try another method. Can you tell me what model of wireless router you have there?
Cisco linksys E1000
OK try these instructions. They walk you through logging into the router and viewing the password. Please let me know if you get stuck on a step.
I opened the original wireless directions and opened this file now what do i do.
I'm sorry I am afraid I am not following you. What file?
I tried to open the Linksys link and it would not open. I went back to the wirelesskeyview directions you gave me and down loaded it. now what is next
Ah Ok. Alright if you have the wirelesskeyview tool in the ZIP file, right click the file you downloaded and choose Extract. Go through the Extraction wizard. At the end a window will appear and you will see an icon of a key.
Are we suppose to use the code under Hex key for a password XX the new device
It depends; does it say your network is WPA or WEP?
OK then you should use the password XXXXX KEY (ASCII) if it is legible. If it's not then use the WEP entry.

there is no number under the Ascii key only under the Hex
OK go ahead and use the HEX key then and hopefully it will do the trick. Just make sure to enter it exactly.Remember, if for any reason you are unsatisfied with my answer, we can continue the conversation until you’re satisfied and Accept my answer.

This key number did not work on the new device. Is there a way to reset the wifi network password XX the computer
Yes there is. We actually have to reset the password XX the router itself, and then join the laptop back to the wireless network. can you tell me who your internet provider is?
road runner time warner cable
OK I have posted instructions below to reset the router and set it up with Time Warner. Keep in mind that you need to perform these instructions from a computer that is attached to the router with a cable, not wireless. Please print or save these instructions so you can refer to them while you are offline. Good luck!
