We can get the correct WiFi password ***** a computer that is connected to your WiFi network. Do you have a computer there connected to your WiFI network ?

If so, Is it an Apple Mac or Windows computer ?

Thanks. one more question. What version of Windows ? 7,8 or 10 ?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Windows 7
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

You can get the correct wireless password ***** the Windows 7 PC connected the Wireless Network. Follow the steps below to get the WiFi password.

Click on the network/wireless icon at the bottom right of the screen (left to the clock)

From the list of networks, right-click on your wireless network name and click on Properties.

Then click on the Security tab.

Then click the box at Show characters.

This will show the password ***** the text box. Use that password ***** connect your devices to your network.

Another way is, press Windows and R keys at same time and this will bring Run window. Type ncpa.cpl and press enter. You will see the WiFi network adapter (with a Wireless icon - don't select Ethernet). Right click on it and select Status. From the resulting window, click Wireless Properties button and click "Show Password" to see the password (under Security tab).

If you have any difficulty on following the steps above, please let me know and I will walk you through it.

It won't let me activate STATUS
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

To make sure, this computer is connected to your router/modem via WiFi and not cable. Right ?

Broadband network 2 and some others, I select the internet that we are using and it gives me options of
Connect
Status
Cancel or default connection etc. but only the Connect button is active, I press the status button and nothing happens
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

If Connect button is active, that means you are not connected to it. So another one there must be your wireless connection.

There is another way. See this video and follow those steps to get the password *****> https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+get+wifi+password+iwnods+7

Ok I managed to find the right network, sorry, but when i go to properties, it does not mention anything about SHOW PASSWORD
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Going to watch video now
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

Don't select Properties. Instead right click on correct network, and select Status. Then from Status, click Wireless Properties button. Then a new window will appear. Select Security tab and the "Show Password" checkbox is here.

Ok, watch the video as it describes another method (all reach to same location).

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No new button appears
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

Did you watch the video and follow those instructions ?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

Ignore all the above steps. Lets try a entirely different method.

Click this link and an application named Wireless Key Viewer will be downloaded --> http://www.nirsoft.net/toolsdownload/wirelesskeyview.zip

Open the file and open the WirelessKeyView.exe application

It will list all the networks your computer ever connected to. Select your WiFi network and you will see the password ***** the right to it under the column Key (Ascii)

This method will definitely work if your computer connected to your WiFi network.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Thank you
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

May I connect to your computer and get the password ***** for you ? It will take only 5 minutes.

I will do this without an additional charge

Do you use teamviewer?
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

I use Citrix Go To Assist. Click this link-> https://www.fastsupport.com/801994788

Follow the onscreen instructions to connect. An application named GoToAssist Launcher will be downloaded. Then open the GoToAssist Launcher application. Allow permission to connect if asked.

If you don't see the downloaded file, press Control and J on your keyboard and this will bring Downloads. Open GoToAssist Launcher from there.

Once we're connected, I will get the password ***** you

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

Team Viewer is also ok if you have it installed already. Give me your ID and temporary password. Then I will connect via Team Viewer. Make sure you don't close Team Viewer

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

I got disconnected from your computer. Did you turn off modem/router accidentally ?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

Denise, can you see my messages ?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Network Technician: Ashik, PC Technician replied 1 year ago

We can continue on Monday. When you are back, just post a reply on here and I will get back to you ASAP.

(If you get a message to rate my service, just ignore it as it is automated)

Also, look on the back of the router for a key or passphrase or password. Normally, WiFi password ***** ***** there for many models of routers. If you find it, try to connect using it

Best Regards,

Ashik
