If you're trying to determine your router's Wi-Fi password or the password to log into the router's administrative interface, follow the steps below:

1. Via a Connected Device:

If you have a device already connected to the Wi-Fi network, you can retrieve the Wi-Fi password from the device's settings:


1. Open the Command Prompt (you can do this by typing `cmd` in the Windows search bar).

2. Type `netsh wlan show profiles` and press Enter. This will show a list of all wireless networks your computer has connected to.

3. To see the password for a specific network, type `netsh wlan show profile name="NETWORK_NAME" key=clear` (replace `NETWORK_NAME` with the name of the network). Press Enter.

4. Scroll down until you find the `Key Content` field. The Wi-Fi password will be listed there.


1. Go to Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access.

2. In the left panel, make sure the "System" keychain is selected. Check the box at the bottom for "Show Passwords."

3. In the search bar, type in the name of your Wi-Fi network.

4. Double click on the corresponding entry, and a new window will pop up.

5. Check the box for "Show Password" at the bottom. You may be prompted to enter your Mac's username and password. Once done, the Wi-Fi password should be displayed.

2. Via Router's Admin Page:

Most routers have a web-based interface that can be accessed using a web browser:

1. Connect to your router’s network.

2. Open a web browser and enter the router's IP address. Common addresses are ``, ``, or ``.

3. You'll be prompted for a username and password. If you haven't changed these, the default is often `admin`/`admin` or `admin`/`password`. The specific defaults vary by manufacturer.

4. Once logged in, navigate through the interface. The Wi-Fi password is often under "Wireless Settings" or a similar category. The exact location varies by router brand and model.

3. Check the Router's Label:

Most routers have a sticker on the bottom or the back that lists the default Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password. If you haven't changed the password since purchasing the router, it may still be the default one listed on the sticker.

Important Notes:

- If you reset your router to its factory settings (often done by pressing a reset button on the router for a certain duration), any custom configurations, including your Wi-Fi name and password, will be lost.

- Always ensure your Wi-Fi password is strong to prevent unauthorized access.

- Regularly updating your router’s firmware can help secure it from vulnerabilities.

If you're unable to retrieve your router's password using the above methods, you might need to contact the manufacturer or your ISP for assistance.
