    Hi everyone.
    2 years ago I gave my Dad a desktop PC which I hooked up a wireless router to and I gave my mom a PC laptop which she uses through the wireless router.
    After setting up her laptop 2 years ago, I can't remember the password to join the network.
    I just gave her a new iPad for her Birthday yesterday and it needs it to let her online.
    Does anyone know how I go through the my Dads Windows desktop to find this?
    Thanks!
    - Dave

    Login to the route via a browser and the passphrase may be displayed in clear text. I can see the passphrase on my Netgear WNDR4000.
