    Is it possible to still find out my network password if I'm hardwired to my the router with an ethernet cable. I know how to go into my network settings and retrieve my network pass if I click on the current wireless connection. Unfortunately my wifi no longer works so I'm only hardwired to my router and want to find out my network pass.
    I posted to picture of the area where you would normally find your network connection password if it was wireless but since it's wired the password wont show up.

    Hello and welcome to TSG!!

    You can log into your router with the admin username/password and find the passphrase. If you cannot do this, you may not be authorized to access it and we cannot help you with that request.

    Your ISP may have a policy where they can log into your modem/router combo and change it/provide it for you. You would need to clear their security questions though.

    If you haven't changed it the default password could be written on the router.
