    Help me please, I havn't used my wireless network for a good 6 months and ive forgotten my password to get access to it
    Is there any way to recover it?
    If not (dare I say it) is there a way to hack my router?
    What else can I do????
    And no I dont want to buy a new one

    If you are using the airport express base station, there is a little re-set button on the back which will re-set it, so it will be back to the way when you first bought it and will take the password away.

    Reset your router, and then log into it (you ought to be able to find out what the IP of the router is by default online - most of them are 192.168.1.1).

    You can usually log in as admin (name) admin (password), and then change your settings.

    Make sense?

    Yea it made sense except heres the funny part I used the different password to access the router as I do for getting on the internet with that router so it would of worked but hey some people were only ment to have 1 password instead of like 30 all for different things
