Default Router password prob

I'm trying to set up my new router - have my login for my broadband but I've forgotten the password.:o I've set my current router up to automatically connect to the internet so the password IS saved on the PC but all I can see is the ****s - can't copy and paste it into notepad, is there any way I can see what's there?

Or do i have to waste a fortune phoning BT to reset it?

Gracias amigos

Surely you have the original letter that came from BT and contained both your password and user name.

Otherwise you will simply have to phone BT and ask them to tell you again. Don't ask them to reset it or they will charge you.
