Bona lost her wireless (router) security key
I have forgotten my security key for my wireless and want to use it on my netbook. How do I find out what this key is? Thanks.

Our Answer
Here is an easy way to recover your wireless router security key, and it works well most of the time. It’s called “Wireless Key View” by Nirsoft. It’s a very small download – zip file – that you simple extract to a folder and click on the exe file to use it. In the main view you’ll see the key in both HEX and Ascii. You’ll be most interested in Ascii – that’s your wireless key. You can download WirelessKeyView from http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html .

Note there are two versions – one for 32bit computers and one for 64bit. And don’t forget to read the program’s documentation. We hope this helps you.
