Depending on the model of your WiFi router, you can usually access the Administration panel by going to one of the following addresses:

http://192.168.1.1/
http://192.168.0.1/
http://192.168.0.254/
http://10.0.0.1/

The username and password vary from model to model, usually it is username:admin/root,password:admin/blank. Check your products manual for any information regarding accessing the administration panel.

After you login, you can easily find the settings under a tab or button, usually named "Security" or "Encryption". As far as settings go, it can greatly change, you'll have to refer to the documents that came with your router, or goto the manufacturer's support site.

The signal from my router to my Samsung blu ray is not strong enough


There are several things you need to consider with wireless connection:
Distance - How far is the Netgear router from the Samsung Blu ray? Try changing the wireless channel on the Netgear router that can help boost the signal. Wireless Security- Have you enabled wireless security on the router? Is it WEP or WPA? Make sure that you input the wireless security key on the Blu Ray player and that you have setup wireless settings correctly.Number of wireless devices - Check the number of wireless devices(laptops, desktops, pda's, etc) connecting to the router as it also weakens the signal. And if wireless security is not enabled on your Netgear router, there's a chance that your neighbor might be connecting to your router via wireless.
You can also test how strong the signal is by placing a wireless laptop on the same location where the blu ray player is. If the laptop gets a weak signal as well, you can try placing the router closer to the blu ray player.

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.


The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.
