    I did a lot of searching and couldn't find the answer. I also ran the First Aid successfully.

    I'm looking for my wireless network password so I went to Keychain Access. It is showing me various networks I've connected to in the past, including my current, and the passwords are coming up as very long, random-looking codes (ex: $38nd2dsomw983jtdkwo35oph - I made that up to show what I mean).

    Is there any way for me to retrieve my current wireless password to my network without messing with the router, modem, etc...? It is stored on my computer because it automatically connects me to the network.

    Thanks for reading :)

    Does it actually have all letters in it, or is it only 1234567890abcdef?
