Somehow I have forgotten my internet password. When I go on my computers it does not spell it out (although I thought there was one computer that did that, but it must have been an old one). I could have sworn it was my maiden name in caps, but it will not take that password.
If I need to reset it, how do I do that??? It is not a huge deal, but we had visitors over Thanksgiving who couldn't use their computer because I couldn't remember the password. Also, my husband just got a iPhone and he has to use the 3G all the time, because I cannot remember the password.
Wish I could help, but I just figured out how to cut and paste yesterday!

I'm not a "techie" by any means. But it seems to me that most sites that ask for your password have a "forgot your password?" option below the block where you would type in your password. If you click on that, they will usually e-mail you (quickly) a temporary password.
I'd like to help, but first I need to know what's asking for the password. Is it your Internet Service Provider, or some software on your computer and if so, which? If it's your ISP that's asking for the password then a call to them should get you your password. If it's some software on your computer then there's typically a way to avoid it (sometimes as simple as deleting that software.) Before anyone can give you real help though we'll need more details.

It is for the ISP. It is so wireless devices can "log on" to our home internet service. It would be the password that we set originally when we set up our wireless service.

The OP is talking about the wireless security key number.
If you haven't changed your network security key from what it was originally then you may find it printed on the bottom of the router. There may be either WEP or WPA printed there with the original key listed behind it.
