I am unable to use my wifi at home because I have lost/forgotten the password.

Can I find the password somewhere on my system? or can I setup another wifi system at home?

If it's the default password on the router:

http://www.routerpas...s.com/index.asp

If not then just Reset the router by holding down the RESET button on the back for 30 seconds (On some routers you need to use an unfolded paper clip to push the button which is down in a hole)

If it's the encryption on the link you are worried about, log into the router and it will usually tell you what you need to know.

Ron, thanks.

I don't think it is the router password.

When Comcast put in the router, they gave my wifi connection a name and I picked the password, which I cannot remember. Was not a problem until I bought an Ipod Touch and need to get into my wifi network.

Could not find a reset botton on the Netgear router.
