    Exclamation How can I find the Network password in Windows 7.

    Found it. The password, that is.

    I have lost the Network password and I know that there is a way to find it but I cannot remember that.
    I am trying to add my laptop to the network.

    In the future if you right click on the wireless icon in your taskbar by the clock and go to Open Network and Sharing Center and then click on Manage Wireless Networks on the left. Here you will see all of the networks that you have connected too. Right click on any connection and go properties. You will have a security tab that shows the security details of the network including the password. Click the box to show characters and there you go.

    Many thanks Aero. I didn't know about that taskbar icon. At the moment I am fighting to get my Home network up and running.
    Open DNS told me to disable V6 and enable V4. The Home network needs V6 to be active. Well it's something to keep me out of mischief.

    If it is referring to ipV4 and ipV6 then I can't imagine why you would need ipV6 enabled for your home network. The ipV6 just allows for a much larger pool of IP addresses. It shouldn't hurt to leave support for it enabled but it should not be required for your home network.

    It was while using the article I mentioned above. The procedure said that I needed it set. Unfortunately, OpenDns told me to disable it. As I am /was relatively ignorant of the subject, I could see a conflict.

    All Hunky Doory now.
