Default Wifi router password finder

Is there an app that finds the password of any wifi router? Because some people forgot their password and cannot get on their wifi... I know there's a way for routers named tomson etc. but some people made their own password... Is there an app to get that password? Or do you have to change anything in your system?

wireless cracker (i think that is what it is called) can get the password of certain wifi's (i think you already found this app), however, do not attempt to use it to get passwords without the consent of the owners of the routers, otherwise it is probably illegal where you are
When will I get my Nexus 4, arghh!!

There is a reset button on almost every router. ;)
