Hi there and welcome

This is for your wifi network correct?

And do you have a windows computer already connected to the wifi network?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Richard, Network Specialist replied 1 year ago

Thanks

We can get the password ***** this.

Press the windows key + R and type in

ncpa.cpl

Press enter

Right click on the wireless connection and click on Status

Then click on wireless properties

Click on the Security Tab and then click on Show Characters and you can then see the wireless password ***** to use

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please.

I am in D-Link on the Acer but I am unable to move from the status tab to any other tab1
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
therefore I can't seem to get to the wireless settings to get the password.
Network Technician: Richard, Network Specialist replied 1 year ago

Close the Status bar in order to navigate

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can't seem to navigate on the D-Link site!
Network Technician: Richard, Network Specialist replied 1 year ago

Can you be more specific please on why not

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
all I can do when I am on that site is move the window contents up and down. Nothing else works. I put my pointer on status to try and close it hit enter and nothing happens! I move my pointer to a different tab in the site hit enter and nothing happens no matter where I go on the tabs with my pointer I hit enter and nothing happens. Is that specific enough?
Network Technician: Richard, Network Specialist replied 1 year ago

ok, I will request as we have been some time on this question, if you can accept my request to connect to your computer and do this for you. If not, I will have to opt out of working with you further as we cannot progress past this, and whilst I understand you enjoy learning about all this, the gial here is to get this solved for you, plus you can see what I am doing anyway.

Please let me know if you accept the additional service and I can connect.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I don't want to spend another $29 on this.
Network Technician: Richard, Network Specialist replied 1 year ago

No problem at all Patrick, I am going to opt out of working with you further on this.

If another expert takes up your case, then you will be notified of this, you do not need to do anything until then

Thanks and all the best
