Hi, I have a Belkin G Router that is connected by Wi-Fi to My Toshiba Laptop, I only have to put my password in to connect the Laptop. How can I find that?? I must have had it once to connect the laptop? surely? Will it be stored anywhere on my Laptop?

It could be on the back of your router! WPA PSK-----

I think you will find that its the routers password that you need.This will not be stored on your laptop. If you are one of the many people who forget to change the default login info then it might well be on the label on the router.Quite often it is nothing more than Admin for user name and Password for password.

If you did change it and have then forgotten it then you will have to reset the router,usually done bu sticking a thin item in a hole at the back of the router. This will reset everything back to default settings that it came with when you bought it.

List of default Router Logins pdf (not same as Wifi Keys)

Laptop must use same encoding as the router is expecting. ie WEP, WPA or WPA2. WPA2 is best.
