Long story short, my wifi was shut off and I have perfect sig on my Xbox to the neighbors, but they have a password. Now somehow, my iPhone connected to it with no password or anything, and I got their ip adress, subnet mask, and a bunch of other stuff. I want to know if there is a way to go DOWN the stairs (metaphor), and get their password, considering I got everything else. Thank you (btw I'm not cp savvy at all so being basic would be much appreciated)
Can I get someones wifi password with their ip adress?
Ask them for it
No. There is no way to do that.
Pay your bills, problem solved.
No, an IP does not give the wifi password…
Obviously not. Otherwise it wouldn't be called security.
Use backtrack5, if you spend an hour reading up on it youll know what to do and how to do it
There is no way that your iPhone connected to a secured network without the password. You are likely connected to a different "open" WiFi connection.
There is also no way to find a WiFi password from mundane information such as the SSID and IP address. If this were true all WiFi passwords would be useless.
That being said,
Even if there were a simple answer, it would violate the Yahoo Answers guidelines to post it.
In the unlikely event, you manage to succeed in your attempt at cracking the WiFi password, It is still illegal to connect to a secured system without express permission and you could be prosecuted.
