How to Find Your Wireless Password without the Router

27 Nov

I ran into this problem today, so I figured I would share the information with you 🙂

If you need to find the wireless password and you don’t have access to the Router (I.e. you are at an extended family’s house like me  :P) Here is how you go about locating that.  

  1. Enter 192.168.1.1 into the URL box in your browser. That’s it. No www or http://.  Just those numbers.
  2. It’s going to ask you for a username and password.  Usually that’s admin and admin for both username and password.  Sometimes it’ll be something like admin and password.  It always works with just admin for me.
  3. Now it should bring up a page with all of your internet’s information- name, router information, etc.  Somewhere there will be a place for Internet Security (or something similar). That is going to have your password!
  4. Mostly, just fiddle around with the page it pulls up, looking at the different tabs and options, until you find security with the password’s information.

Worked for me; hope it helps you!!
