An older couple (friends) recently purchased a Tablet PC. They currently have WiFi through a Comcast (may they rot in hell) NetGear router. Their Tablet PC finds the Router of course but requires the Security (probably WEP) code to connect. They are having trouble getting Comcast Support to provide the Code as they can't understand the foreign national at Comcast (may they rot in hell) Customer Service. I advised them that the Security code is already in use by their desktop computer so they only need to "unhide" the code to see what it is, and not mess with Comcast (may they rot in hell). Problem is I have forgotten how to get to the code entry part of Win7 Network sharing so they can see their code and use it to connect their Tablet PC.

The code being discussed is the Wifi Protected Setup code (WPS)
This can be found in the router settings and is not something that Comcast has any access to.
Identify the model of Wireless router they are using.
Do a search for how to log into this router (often the default gateway ip address with a generic user/password)
Somewhere in this setup area you will see a WPS code. This would be the code to allow them to log on with their Tablet.
