Thank you.

Here are the steps to get

your network security key/wi-fi password ***** a Windows 10, 8 or 7

computer that is already connected to your wireless network.

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: ncpa.cpl and click OK

The Network Connections window will open.

Right-click on your Wi-Fi icon (the one with the green bars) (please see attachment below)

and select Status.

Click the Wireless Properties box.

In the Wireless Properties window, click the Security tab at the top.

Put a checkmark in the Show Characters box.

What you see to the right of Network Security Key is your wireless password.

It is case sensitive and must be entered exactly as you see it on your screen.

Let me know the result please.
