wifi password is lost


We have 2 computers connecting the wireless network. I reinstalled the linux machine and lose the saved wifi password. I don't have the router access password. I am looking at other computer running Mac and see wifi password as xxxxxxxx. Is there a way to see what wifi password is (from the Mac computer)? The "show password" button is disabled.

When I forgot the password to the router control panel, I reset the router to bring the default factory settings (with the default password). Then you can set new router access and wifi passwords.
