Hi Edward,

Thanks - AOL normally use a Thomson Speedtouch model. If so, you can follow the below procedure to retrieve the wireless password.

Go to either of the addresses below


and that should load a web interface - from there choose:

1 In the left menu, click Home Network.
2 Under Wireless, click the name of the Access Point you want to view or

And the Wireless Password/Key should be displayed.
