Dave can’t remember his wireless security key
I can’t remember what my security key for my wireless network is and want to use it on my new iPad. How do I find out what this key is? Thanks!

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  .
