how do I find my wireless password?
Help, I made up a wireless password about a year ago on my mac, and have forgotten it. This hasn't been a problem until now, I purchased a new macbook and it is asking for my password.
I thought it would be sweet to call my internet provider and after answering security questions they could give me my password, but they said they can't, the password is saved in the modem and I have to contact the modem tech support to find out how to recover my password. Only problem is, the only number I can find for them is a 1300 number in Australia, I live in New Zealand.
Does anyone know how I can find my password through my computer? I am connected to the wireless modem on this computer, so how do I recover the password through this so I can use it on my new laptop?
Not sure if it makes a difference, but the modem I am using is Edimax.
Thank you x 100000

On the Mac that has a working connection, look up the name of the wireless LAN you're connected to (via the AirPort Menu Bar icon or the Network Preferences) and then go to Applications > Utilities > Keychain and look up your password.
