Alright, here is the story,

a very good friend of mine as way to strict parents... so they secured the wireless in order to prevent her to access the 'dangarous' internet, what can she do about that? Is there a way to get the accesskey?

thnx in advance,

Sometimes the Router can block specific websites, so if she can access this router and manage to unblock them then it's a go. 192.168.x.x is usually the IP to the Router, if it's password blocked and she doesn't know it or she can't guess it, what you can do is Google the Router Model for "Default Username & Password" and find that out, try it and if it doesn't work you can go to plan c, which is resetting the router. Somewhere on the router there'll be a button, hold it in for a few seconds and then try the default Username & Password with it.

IF all of that doesn't work, then it's the ISP that's blocking the websites... Which would mean that either. 1. Game over, or 2. You can call, pretend to be them, access the account, and unblock it.

The best method would be using a proxy. There are so many proxy online and I bet she could find one.

Additional notes: If she was unable to connect the wireless network itself, the only method is to crack it.

To go into more detail about what everyone else said in terms of password cracking, there are many top of the line brute forcers out there that can work in such a scenario but stay away from brutus.Its a virus all in itself and is very ineffective

Method 1: Hack the router

Have your friend connect to the wireless network with a fake password. With this you will not be able to access the internet but you can get to the router. Go to command prompt and enter the words 'ipconfig' (without the quote marks). Look for the default gateway and type its IP into the browser. A password screen will pop up. Try to use the default admin username and password which you can google for (e.g. user:admin pass:admin). If they have changed the password, then use a brute-forcer to crack it. I recommend Cain and Abel.

Method 2 (May or may not work): Sniffing

Download a tool of the net which will sniff the network for packets and once it has gathered enough the password can be cracked. Why it may not work, you ask? Because even if you connect to the network you might not be able to tap into the data flow.

Not too much mentioned method:

SPEAK about it. Speak with their parents. Its ok if they use the computer together. Really if you circumvent this it may cause more friction.
