    How to retrieve Wi-Fi network password with Lenovo tablet running on Windows 7?

    It is not possible to connect my Lenovo tablet running on Windows 7 to the home Wi-Fi network as I forgot the correct password. I need a new password for establishing the connection. In what way can I get it?

    You can retrieve the password by going into network settings. First of all, get into the right side of the taskbar in your system. Navigate through the notification area until you can find Wireless network symbol. Locate the Wi-Fi network you want to connect. Right click on that network for bringing up a settings menu. Navigate through that menu afterwards and make a single click on ‘Properties’ option. You can then find ‘Show characters’ option on the screen. Click on that option to view the password.

    Hi.
    If you have a computer that can connect to the Internet, you can find the password by doing the following:
    >>Open a web browser.
    >>Enter the IP address for your wireless router into the search bar (for example, 192.168.1.1). Look for your routerís default IP address in your router documentation or online.
    >>Enter the user name and password to open your routerís configuration webpage. Most router documentation includes the default user name and password.
    >>On the configuration webpage, look for a wireless or wireless settings option.
    >>Now, look for a security or wireless encryption setting. The security key (sometimes called a network key, a passphrase, or a network password) should be listed nearby.

    Find your password using Windows
    If you have a computer running Windows that is connected to your wireless network, you can find the password by doing the following:
    >>Click the wireless strength indicator on the Windows 7 taskbar (bottom right corner). If youíre using Windows 8, do this step from the Desktop.
    >>Right-click your wireless network name, and then select Properties.
    >>Select Show characters to display the wireless network password.


    Thank you.

    Passwords in WiFi network are present as to protect your WiFi network from engaging into unauthorised hands. Some people within the range of your personal WiFi may take free data benefits if they are in the knowledge of your password. So its always adviced that you have a good and strong password.
    A lot of times it happens that we forget such tricky passwords ourselves. Windows has this one way to help you retrive your forgotten password. kindly follow.

    1.kindly go to your taskbar and locate the notifications (bottom right)
    2.navigate through it and see the wireless network option.
    3.it is the basic mobile reception or network symbol that you can find in your everyday cellphones.
    4.selecting it will let you know the already known networks.
    5.identify your WiFi network and right click on it..
    6. Select properties and select show characters.
    7. The characters of your password will be revealed..

    Thank you...
