I recently formatted my hard disk and have lost my network key for connecting to my home wireless network. Is there any way to retrieve the key? If not, will I have to contact the manufacturer of the wireless router or my internet service provider?
Hope someone can help me out since being 'wired' is driving me nuts!
connect to the router using ethernet cable. Browse to the router's home page and then to the wireless security page. If you're lucky the key will be there in clear text. You'll probably have to enter a user name and password to get to the settings page. if you've changed them and forgotten, read on. If they're the default ones, then look in the manual.
If you can't get into the security page, then you'll have to to restore the router to its factory settings and start again
