You must be wired directly to the router for this
Go to Start-Run-Type in CMD <Enter>
Type IPCONFIG <Enter>
Look at the third set of numbers (Default Gateway)
It should look something like 192.168.1.1
Open up your Internet Browser
Type in the Gateway address in the Address Line <Enter>
This should take you to the Main Page of your router

From there you need to follow along and read every page carefully. All routers are not the same but you should find an area that says Wireless and then Security. If you used WEP encryption, for example, you will find that information there. This should cover you with most routers.

    you just hold the little reset button on your router down for 10 seconds and it will reset your password so you will have to enter a new one

    the ip is 192.168.0.1 and usually the default usename is admin or administrator, no password needed, then you can get to the page where you input network key, but i guess you would need encryption key(password) to connect to it in the first place, LOL, so if you can't connect to it find out how to reset it, the reset button might be at the back of the router

    you should be about to tell your browser to go to:
    http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.0.254

    and there it will ask for your login and password. If you already go that far, and you're still stuck for the password, then you can drop the big bomb, which is to get out your manual or CD with the manual on it or go the the manufactuer's website with the manual and find out how to do a hard reset, which usually involves holing down a button or pushing in a paper clip while cycling the power. Then you'll have to repeat all the setup, but the password will be back to default. BY THE WAY, if you NEVER CHANGED THE PASSWORD in the first place, don't do the reset, just use the default password they document IN THE MANUAL.
