Hi All.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. Now I created a Wireless Network from my Router, but I forgot the password. It is WEP encryption. The only way I can connect to the wireless network is if I disable the security in my router config. Any help?

Thanks

when you log into the router, you can then set the password for the wireless - so why have you forgot it ?

You mean resetting it? Giving it a new one? I tried it but it does not work. I forgot it because I was confident enough that I wouldn't...since I haven't used it in a while, I forgot it...stupid I know

what security type are you choosing ?
you should be able to set a password

Often the wireless security password is written on a label on the router - but if you have changed it , then you need to re-change and make a note of the password and then connect
