If the coordinates to access the modem I just gave you turn out to be inaccurate, you can consult my guide on how to find the IP address of the router to try to fix it.

Once logged in, look for the section or wording referring to Wi-Fi configuration or to Wi-Fi security. You will then find the Password of the wireless network indicated at network name (i.e. theSSID).

For example, if you are using a modem Netgear us Genie interface, to find the password of the wireless network generated by it, you must select the wording wireless in the menu on the left, locate the section Security Options (WPA2-PSK) and see what is written next to the field Passphrase.
