My computer is fine, just want my cell phone to hook up to it occasionally and it needs a password. In the past it did it automatically.

I prefer you tell me how to get a new password. Thanks.
Network Technician: Mr.Med, Network Administrator replied 8 months ago
  • Click on the radio bars in the bottom right (near the time). Then click on your wireless network in the list (where it says connected).
  • Click properties.
  • Then in the new window click Security, then show characters.
  • You will then see the wireless password


Let me know the results
Thank you

I tried your way, and when clicking my wireless network, it just said it was connected, not any properties. Some how or other I went into my computer and found properties, security, etc and found the password. thanks for your assistance, which actually helped.
