I cannot locate the...

I cannot locate the password ***** our wi-fi router. We named the network and somehow never recorded the password. My wife now has a new phone Applle 7 and we need the password ***** download various apps to her new phone. The network is on my phone, an apple 6 and our laptop.

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

We never changed it, the password ***** originally set up when we installed the new router a couple of years ago.

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

I'm connected now from this laptop and my Iphone.
