    I know is not you, it was just an example, but I'm always suspicious of those magic applications. I think the best to do is just to reset the router and create a new password.

    Exactly. It's been auto-filled in for the last 3 years and I haven't had to manually enter it, so I don't remember. I can already access the network obviously, but can't get additional computers onto the network. Who the hell do you think you are? Where do you get off accusing people of hacking without any base whatsoever? I don't appreciate baseless accusations by jerk offs!

    Well the wireless passwords are just saved in an encrypted file on your computer. These just decrypt them into plain text. I dont think there would be much security risk as someone would physically have to understand your exact location and somehow get there. Your ip only tells a round about area, to which only your isp knows and will reveal with a warrant. Therefore, i think your safe.

    There is a little button in the back of the router, press it for about 30 seconds, then enter 192.168.1.1 on the url space of IE or FF or GC.....and then enter a new password.

    Its suspicious thats why.

    Why are you so aggressive when you can just easily go to YOUR router and check/set the password?

    For all we know your trying to steal your room mates wireless connection or something. Thats why we do not linger and discuss these things.

    Hmm it seems that their download links no longer work on the website. I guess the mods do not want this discussed anymore so i will stop.
