Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your Netgear router?

Do you also have a laptop / wireless computer that is currently connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Can you please click on the website below:

http://192.168.1.1

, then it should give you a login prompt, then enter admin for the username, and enter password for the password

, then click on the option Wireless Settings, then if prompted to check / update firmware, click on Cancel

, then you will see your passphrase / key there; that is your Wi-Fi / wireless password; it is case-sensitive.

- If there is any issue, please check at the back / bottom of your Netgear router device for the model of it (there also may be a password ***** key there), then let me know.
