    Steps to be taken for finding the password for wireless network connected with Windows 8 laptop

    My brother set up a wireless network on my Windows 8 laptop and did not share the password with me. I would like to know the password for that network after he connects it. What are the procedures required for that?

    Navigate through the taskbar visible on the desktop and tap the wireless icon. This will bring up the list of wireless connections available on your system. Locate the wireless connection you want from that list. Then, right click on that connection and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Check that menu afterwards and hit the ‘View connection properties’ option. On doing so, the properties window of that network will come up on the screen. Go to the top part of that window and press the ‘Security’ tab. After that, find out ‘Show characters’ label and check the check box next to it. You can then view the password for the selected network inside the ‘Network security key’ box.

    Hello !!

    if your brother has set up open connection than you don't need to know the password , just select the network and click connect it will connect automatically.
    but if the network is protected with WEP/WPA key than surely you have to put the password to connect it.

    for knowing the password you have to check on the box of for the special password so, that when you enter the password it will convert it from hexadecimal to the alphanumeric form and will let you know the password.

    otherwise there comes a software called Wireless cracker, with the help ofthe software you can crack any of the wifi password whether it is WEp/WPA protected.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............

    1.Firstly your brother should turn on the Wi-Fi.

    2.Later you go to the 'Settings'.

    3.Then you click on the option 'WCSD_Public'.

    4.Then a dialog box will appear.

    5.Then you make a right click on 'WCSD_COW'.

    6.There you click on the option 'View Connection Properties'.

    7.There you go to the 'security' tab.

    8.Then you make a check mark to 'Show Characters' and you can see the 'Network security Key'.

    By seeing this video you can get the clear information about the procedure.
