  • If you are referring to the Secure WiFi of OneCare, this text from Instant Help describes how to locate this information:

    To add a computer to a wireless network if you used the Add a PC wizard in Windows Live OneCare:
    1. On the computer that you used to help secure the wireless network, click Change Settings.
    2. On Firewall tab, click Advanced settings.
    3. On the Network connections tab, click your wireless network, and then click Details.
    4. The SSID and network key appear in the Security Information area.

    If you added a computer or a device to the network manually, read the instructions in the manufacturer's manual, or contact the manufacturer of the router for information about how to obtain the network name and network key.


    Changing the security settings on the router will disconnect any computer or device that was previously connected to the router.


    If you are not using OneCare, I'm afraid you are off topic for this forum and you'll need to consult your router/access point documentation.
