    Iv tried that already. It only gives me the hex key. I want the Ascii key. And the data encryption is AES. If that helps
    Thanks

    Not my intention to hijack this thread but...

    It amazaes me that people don't remember or write down these pieces of information... or at the very least use something they will remember...

    I have been through 3 wireless router/modem units and I've used the same passphrase... I've hardly had to do a reset because I couldn't add a device to the network!!!

    I don't forget it because it's something significant.

    Having said that if you forget it... just do a reset on your wireless router... small price to pay for forgetting the information and most certainly a good reason to choose something you will remember... thus avoiding further similar situations.

    Just an observation!

    Should be easy enough since your current PC is connecting to the router OK - log into the router, look under wireless security, write down the password - enter that into the other computer = Connected.
