    Ok, here is my situation....I'm sure more then 1 of you have come across this very simple problem. I can't remember my password for my wireless network! I tried to troubleshoot in windows to figure out how I reset it, but no such luck. Anyone got any ideas how I get my password back for my network. Only ever used the password once and that was to set up the network. I'll be darned if I remember what it is..lol Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Assuming you've got administrative control of your wireless router, just go ahead and change the "shared key" (password) to something else. After you make the change, any laptops which were using the wireless network will pop up a dialog in which you can type the new password.

    Expanding on Kryten's post, if you can supply us with the make of your router, we can tell you how to access your admin control (is likely going to be 192.168.0.1)

    reset button on router. hold down for 30 seconds. all settings and passwords go to default.

    you wont be "redoing" your whole network. you're just "resetting up" your network. new password on your router, and new password on your wireless devices. get your pc to surf the internet first before you go for the wireless part. i always have trouble with the basic settings.

    if you have cable internet, you may have to unplug and shut down everything.
    it's recommended to do this:
    1) unplug router and cable modem. turn off pc
    2) plug in cable modem. wait 1 min till the modem gets connected.
    3) plug in router. wait till router gets connected (about 1 min also)
    4) turn on PC.
    (at least i think that's what ur suppose to do)
