wifi password if you haven't changed it is normally printed on bottom of router

if you have changed it then log into router settings & look on the wifi tab

This thread makes absolutely no sense. You can't have a WiFi connection that's wired. You need to explain your situation in much more detail. If your desktop is wired and it's requesting a password when you connect, I'm guessing this is on a corporate network where they're using 802.1X. If this is the case, contact your IT department for help.

I am guessing from the poster's ISP that they are connecting by Ethernet to the cable box but wants to connect something wireless as well like a phone or ipad or similar or more likely a smart TV or other IOT device

Yeah, that would be the only thing which makes sense in a home residential setting where the poster is looking for details of how the router is configured. And if this is the case, a call to the ISP would be warranted if the information is not printed on the router as you state.

Ignoring the post (especially the nonsense about wired wireless :D ) and taking the thread title as a question there are two answers ...

a. with any computer connected to the router (wired or wireless) login to the router and navigate to the wireless section and look at the password. If the password is not shown then set a new one.

b. I don't have a Windows 7 with wireless to check, but I think it's very similar to the way in Windows 8.1: open the Network and Sharing Center - click on the name of the wireless connection to bring up a "Wi'Fi Status" window - Wireless Properties - Security tab - Show characters (under Network security key).
