Question from Sean: My wife and I rented out a spare bedroom to a college student a while back, and once while we were on vacation our router died.
Not wanting to have to do without Wi-Fi until we got back, our renter purchased a replacement router and installed it.
When we got back from our trip he gave us the password he had put on the new router’s wireless network and we used it to log on to the network with our Windows 10 PCs.
When our renter left he told us we could keep the router, and we were very grateful. The problem is we lost the paper with the Wi-Fi password on it.
My wife had to have the hard drive in her laptop replaced and when they reinstalled Windows 10 it wiped out her password. Do you know of any way to retrieve the Wi-Fi password from the router so she can sign back on to the network? [Read more…]
