I CANNOT REMEMBER MY WIFI PASSWORD. IT HAS BEEN SEVERAL

Customer Question
I CANNOT REMEMBER MY...

I CANNOT REMEMBER MY WIFI PASSWORD.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your Wi-Fi password?

IT HAS BEEN SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I ACTUALLY HAD TO PURCHASE A NEW ROUTER AND IN SETTING IT UP DID NOT WRITE THE PASSWORD *****

Technician's Assistant: Have you connected to this Wi-Fi network from a laptop or desktop (either Mac or PC) in the past?

YES I THINK SO. THIS COMPUTER WOULD BE ON THE ROUTER UNDER THAT PASSWORD.

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

NO, BUT WILL APPRECIATE ANYTHING YOU CAN DO.

Can you please let me know make and model of your current wireless router? It should be listed on the label on the bottom or on the side.

If you have Windows PC connected to the router already and it can access internet, then you need can login to router directly and find WiFi password. Or if you unable to login to the router - you can reset it and set password *****
