You could always just explain to him your reasons for needing the password...

Simple, Set up a second account that is hidden with all the rights he has, and use it instead. It requires figuring out the password first though. So If you get it once, make one and by the time he changes his pass it wont matter anymore

Edit: Probably should have found out why you need to get around it though.. hmm.. Oh well, Nothing I said was illegal, We're Straight haha

he's the boss. he obviously has his reasons, whether you like them or not is insignificant. you're the kid, he's the dad, so deal with it. if you don't like it, grow up, move out, buy your own stuff/pay your own bills, and then do what you want.

we don't give out ways around passwords on this site....go somewhere else. (and shame on some of you members for trying to help with this).

does your router have a reset button? That should reset the password.

You just went on a pointless rant,for now real reason.Did he say he dosent appreciate what his dad does for him? NO. He just wants help.There was no reason for posting that.

yeah, he wants help around someone else's password which no one should give him.
