    Hmm.. I'd recommend you to contact Airtel support and ask them to reset your password and then use that password.

    no nothing, the password is encrypted and is most probably stored in your registry......

    if u want it then try to find that relevany key and copy it...... in a way u know the password as u can enter ur regitry key anytime...

    The password is stored in the router and not in Windows Registry. Lemme try my luck with hacking my router.

    Okay ... Here is the good news .. I figured out how to find it .. :p ... Now the bad news is this is geeks stuff and you shouldnt try it if you arent confident with CLI.
    So to find out your ISP Password, Do this:
    Start > Run > Cmd <Press Enter>
    On the Command line, type:
    telnet 192.168.1.1 <Press Enter>
    Type your router username and password. (The default is admin/admin unless you have changed it).
    On the telnet cli, type this:
    console enable <Press enter>
    Console should look like this:
    Quantum>
    Now in the console mode, type this :
    Quantum> fm <Press Enter>
    Now type:
    Quantum fm>cat im.conf <Press Enter>
    Now this will be a big file, and will take around a 20 seconds to list. After the listing is finished, find the string "password". The text listed against weLoginPassword is your ISP password. Its stored in cleartext. :p

    Tell me if you could do it .. I am thinking about posting it to my blog .. :p

    in sify it is stored in the windows registry... so i thought that maybe airtel people use some kind of a similar technique...

    I found it fixed my problem when I came back from vacation. someone got into my wireless router and hooped my router. I had to reset it and dig up the default password again :-S
