Alexbridgeman, in Windows 7: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center then click on "Wireless Network settings"
Then on "Wireless Properties."
Then on "Security"
Then on "Show characters"

dont know where its stored but should point out that a security flaw with wps means the password can be

relatively easily broken--in as little as a couple of hours--much faster than a decent wpa password can be

my advice is to disable wps in your router configuration page--if your router allows disabling wps

In the Start Menu search box type in: stored passwords
From the Control Panel section choose Manage Windows Credentials.
