If you can log onto the router @ 192.168.1.1 with the user name:admin- password: password
then you can go to the Wireless tab, then security. There you will see you key.
If not you need to reset the router:
Push the "Default Reset" button on the back of the Netgear WGR614-V6. The button is located on the back of the unit, to the left of the external antenna. You may need to use a pin or the tip of a pencil to access the button.
Continue holding the button in until you see the "Power" indicator on the front of the unit turn off and back on. This takes approximately ten seconds.
Let go of the button. The Netgear WGR614-V6 shuts off and turns back on. Allow several seconds for this process to complete.
Log into the router using the default password by opening a Web browser and navigating to the address "192.168.1.1." Enter the password "password" to log in.
