WiFi Password

Forget your WiFi Password?

There are multiple ways to recover your WiFi Password. Most cases your WiFi password is located on the label on your Wireless Router. It’s going to be typed in the section that says Network Key or Password. Here is an example:

If WISPWest.net programmed up the Wireless Router for you, the password could also be your phone number attached to the account with no spaces or dashes. I.e. if your phone number is 1-406-222-5454, your WiFi password would look like this: 4062225454
