The Network Security Key is possibly the same pw as the network you are attaching to. This device can be configured in so many different ways.
If you can't figure it out then use the reset button on the back or use paper clip in reset hole.
To set up and configure your AirPort Extreme to use AirPort for wireless networking and Internet access, use the setup assistant in AirPort Utility.
The manual may be of some help... Available here http://support.apple.com/manuals/#airport

Open your airport utility (Applications/Utilities/Airport Utility). See if anything comes up on the left. If not, reset your airport and network. Also, in System Preferences, click Network. See what it shows for airport, and delete your current network, and set up a new one. Do you have bars on your airport on the tool bar?

I had trouble connecting my PC to an airport network that my mac was working just fine on. I found this forum to get an "equivalent network password" and it worked great. The pictures were helpful too. Go to the Airport Utility and Then the "Base Station" header on your mac. Then select "Equivalent Network Password". It will be super long and lots of letters and numbers. Worked for me! Here is the forum: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1790
To join an AirPort network: 1. Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Network. 2. ClickAirPort in the network connection services list and choose a wireless network from the Network Name pop-up menu. Enter the password for the network if necessary. If the network you expected is not in the list, it may be a “closed” network and not be available in the list. Try clicking Other, and then enter the network name and password if necessary. If AirPort isn’t in the list, click Add (+) at the bottom of the list, choose AirPort from the Interface pop-up menu, give the AirPort service a name, and then click Create.
