    Well, that's a blueprint for a Fourier series. But it doesn't have an answer by itself. It needs a function as input and a value of x to evaluate for (but if we had both of those there would be no point in actually finding the fourier series - we would just evaluate the function for x and have our answer.)

    Maybe the password is just fourier or something.

    Fourier is only seven letters, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK are 8-63 characters long. It could be WEP, but you can derive the key through collisions in the 16M unique initialization vectors. It could also be a captive portal, but you could just spoof the MAC address of a person that is already authenticated to bypass the MAC-state table.

    Where we're going, we don't need passwords

    If I made the sign it'd be "WiFi Password" it is bright red and underlined. No one would ever get it either.
    Then why did he put the Devil in me?

    This one time, I picked up a scan gun in a retail environment. A couple of button presses and I was into the menu, looking up the SSID, which, on the original Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) '802.11' standard (of which Hedy Lamarr is co-developer/patent holder) the SSID is the only protective mechanism, since the FHSS sequence and duration was technologically the 'encryption' itself back in the day, but now it's a known sequence, built into the firmware of all FHSS client cards and APs.

    Edit:
    The password, I want it! give it to me!

    Of all the most brilliant women of the world, Hedy Lamarr was probably the most beautiful.
