There is probably a "restore factory defaults" button or hole into which you can stick a pointy thing somewhere on the router.

before you reset the router

get a network cable and plug your pc straight into the router

Log into the router.. launch internet browser, in the address bar type the ip address of the router in this format http://

If you dont know whatyour ip address of your router is .. click start and run, type cmd and press return. In the black box type ipconfig.. the line that says default gateway is the ip address of your router

this will take you to the set up page of your router.. you should be able to access the wireless settings and see/reset your network key

good luck
