View Full Version : Get network password

June 14th, 2009, 07:52 AM
How can I get my network password off my computer? I'm at a friends house for the summer and they gave me the network key but I'm about to format my harddrive and put Windows 7 and the latest Ubuntu on there. It's 3am and I'm not going to wake them up to get it;)

I obviously already have access to their network (on my XP partition), is there a way to retrieve it?

PS I can't log into their router because it was set up for them forever ago with a username and password and nobody knows what it is....

EDIT: Scratch that, password was "admin" for the router :) :) :)

Easy hack on the router though... maybe change that??

Yeah, they are also on 64 bit so I think I will set them up a new network this morning.

On a completely unrelated note, I just installed Windows 7 RC. I've been on it literally only like 5 minutes but this is almost identical to Vista (as far as GUI). I thought they totally revamped it throwing out the taskbar etc. I remember seeing like a circle of icons on the desktop that acted as some sort of control panel.....am I crazy?
