    Default Wireless Network password

    Are there any utilities that can 'decode the dots' of any password thats been typed in? I need this because I need to find out the password of our wireless network and changing the password altogether would be too tricky. I have tried a small utility called asterisk key, but when I put it onto the wireless network box, it comes up with ????????, as in cannot decode.

    cant you just log into the wireless router/access point and change the password there?

    It would be too much of a hassle because there are about 30 people who use the network.

    I see, do you have people on the network who are using Windows 7 and are connected through the wireless? There's an option under the wireless adaptor that allows you to see what the wireless password is.

    Make sure you read all the reviews on this app, especially the one about the malware you get with it.

    Its NOT malware, its perfectly safe and clean, along with all the other software from Nirsoft.

    Antivirus programs detect them as infections / Trojans because of how they work - they are basically reading passwords, which are not normally shown.

    Most password recovery software will do the same false positives.

    None of the people have 'evolved' to win 7
