      Unhappy view wpa-psk passphrase on router

      I have stupidly lost my passphrase. I have 2 laptops already wirelessly connected to the router with wpa-psk passphrase security. now want to wirelessly connect desktop but cannot remember passphrase. can I view the passphrase on router? otherwise seems like router factory re-set and set up all 3 from scratch.

      As you can tell from the above I am both new to sky and routers and I am not a 'techie'. any advice would be much appreciated.

      I am not at home at the moment otherwise I would try the above.

      Re: view wpa-psk passphrase on router

      Hi to get to the pass phrase, you need to do the following:

      Connect to the router through a web browser by typing in http://192.168.0.1 into the address bar.

      When prompted for a username / password type in admin / sky

      Once the screen has loaded, you should see a link called 'wireless' on the left hand side. Click this.

      Once this page has loaded you should be able to the WPA code towards the bottom.

      Look at the bottom of the router, If you havent altered the original 'key' it should be on a sticker on the bottom. ( at least mine was )
