Help wireless encryption

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
**I know this is borderline on the ToS, not sure if this is allowed or not, if it isn't to be discussed I'm sorry and please just close/delete this**

Please help I've got a problem, my friend brought over his laptop so we can play online together but, obviously we have the wi-fi wpa encrypted for security, but I can't remember my password.

Basically on the wireless we have a laptop running windows ME (god aweful i know, i need to fix it) and my dads business computer, but not allowed touching that at all (paranoid parents). So I can't just change the wireless password as dad will freak!. Is there anyway I can just read the password off the laptop with windows ME so we can play some games because this really sucks.

Sorry if this isn't allowed for discussion I just don't know what my other options are.

i think there are programs out there that let you decrypt a wep key if you are already connected on the network, is that what you are talking about?

Sort of, I figured if it auto connects everytime its within range it has to just store it somewhere so would there be a way to read it in the registry or if there is a reliable program to find it. I don't wanna just google some junk filled with adware...

i have never tried it myself, and i'm not sure how sketchy some of those programs might be...

Log into the router through your computer/laptop and look up the password!

192.168.1.1

leave name field blank and for password it's admin

Since your rents are "paranoid" they probably changed the password. If thats the case use a Cat5 cable if you have one, of course.

I looked, it doesn't tell me the old one, it just has a field to change the password to a new one unfortunately
