Oh boy! I do not know the password for my netgear N600

Customer Question
Oh boy!...

Oh boy! I do not know the password ***** my netgear N600 router modem and the network password ***** (slewwind912) doesn't work.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried "power cycling" your router -- unplugging it and letting it rest for about ten seconds?

Here is my dilemma: I have a desktop computer which is connected to the internet thru this router. I am afraid to play with that one. My problem is to connect to the router from my Nook tablet.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

It has not worked for a while...so long ago tht I can't remember the password

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I've tried to enter a number of different passwords (thru the tablet) but none seem to work. Q Is there a place on my desktop which will reveal the network password?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the network expert to know before I connect you?

If you can tell me what version of Windows you have I should be able to tell you how to get the wi-fi password ***** the desktop.

If you're not sure what version you have, on your keyboard, hold down the Windows

logo key to the left of the spacebar and press R.

The Run box will open.

In the text area type: winver and click OK.

A window will open telling you which Windows you have.
