Recovering Wi-Fi network password
You would see a Wi-Fi network icon on the taskbar and you have to click on that. After that, you would right-click the wireless connection and need to go to the Properties. In that window, you could see the Security tab. There you could find the Network Security Key and that would be not in readable format. In order to make that readable, you need to check the box for the 'Show Characters'. Then you could be able to view the network key. This solution will be effective if you are using the Windows 7 in the system.
There are different utilities available to recover the lost network password. Network Password Recovery Wizard and Network Password Decryptor are examples of such utilities. Network Password Recovery Wizard could be able to recover a different types of password. Network password would include Dial-up (RAS), Direct PC, DSL, VPN and also other network passwords. You have a choice of the manual and the automatic recovery modes. The Network Password Decryptor would recover all the saved network passwords. It would display the name, type of password and password modified date. You just need to run this utility and then click the Start Recovery button.
It is seen that when you use these utilities, some of the antivirus programs would treat them as virus and would produce false alerts. This would make trouble in the network password recovery. If you are suing the non registered version of the utility, the complete password recovery is not achieved. Only the first three letters would be there. In that case, you have to collect the registration key and this would solve such errors. You have to perform the recovery in the administrator mode. Before downloading the utilities, you need to use only the genuine website to get licensed copy of product. Otherwise, it would not perform well. There might be compatibility issues also. So you would check the system requirements before using these utilities.
