So you need a password to log on to your WiFi. Is that it?

It's really hard to determine what kind of password prompt you're seeing. There are many different sorts of passwords. Can you post a screenshot?

If the account was standard you shouldn't be asked for a password every time. Check the settings of UAC (User Account Control) if you can How do I change the behavior of the User Account Control message?

That's a guest or a secondary account you're on. The admin account is on a different password when you log in.

Get up with who you got it from and get the admin password.

Ehhh.... alright, let's try something else.
Can you give us a screen shot of what you are prompt with?
I am failing to understand your exact problem.

There is another way to remove the password but its against the rules of the forum.
