    I don't think so...why don't you just access the router settings from your computer?

    Im not sure, but I think you'd have to call your ISP to have them reset it from there.
    The second option is going into your router settings try changing it in there.

    Not possible. if you also use PC to connect to the same network you can view the password from you PC.

    You can't see the password on all routers. It depends on how that manufacturer did things in the management software.

    But at the very least, you should be able to change it (or add another and switch to it). The down side of changing it is that if you're like many of us you'll probably have to run around your house and re-log into the network on all your computers, phones, tablets, blu-ray players, toasters ...

    Don't depend on memory for storing your passwords.

    When I use the above address I get my modem which is on cable. Using Fing (in Play Store) I get a lot of info with my router address being 192.168.101.0. Neither Google or Firefox will allow me to log in and Fing's settings don't seem to allow this. Don't know what I'm missing but you can't seem to recover the router password without being able to log in as administrator using default password on the computer with the router software to access router settings.

    What is the make of the router, you can Google and get a guide to logging in and changing setting but once you are in you can find the pass key let me know if u have any trouble
