If it is the password for the router's wireless connection that you forgot, the only option is to reset the router to factory default condition, then re-enter all you configuration information (including the wireless password), and then change the password in the other computers to match.
There is a "Reset" switch that requires a paper clip or similar item to depress it (with the router on) and hold for about 10 seconds, then release. This puts the router back into its factory default state.
Reset the router to factory default
With the router powered
on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for
exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will
restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This
should show the router status page with the default settings.
How to setup new router:
Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If
you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note
of the user name and password.
Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.
Turn on in your modem and wait 10 seconds. Plug in your router and restart your computer.
Select "Start," then "Control Panel" and then "Network
Connections." Right-click "Local Area Connection" to bring up your
network connection properties.
Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)," then "Obtain an IP
Address Automatically" and then "Obtain DNS Server Addresses
Open your web browser. If you are prompted for a user name and password, enter the information you recorded in Step 1.
Check your internet connection settings. If you are using a connection that requires a username and password to connect to the Internet (such as phone-line based DSL or Dialup), It will need to be set up again. If you forgot this account information, or don't have it handy- you will need to contact your ISP for further assistance.
If you have forgotten the login password you can RESET the Belkin back to the factory defaults and configure it again. THEN Power up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs. The default login password is blank.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

If you connect the laptop wired, does it work correctly?
If your Wireless router has password protection, try resetting it to factory defaults, and connect it that way. If you can connect with the factory defaults (with no security), it's likely an issue with the security on your router.
I'd suggest starting again. Reset to factory defaults, re-secure the network and try a different SSID name this time, and try again.
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).
when you reset the router to factory defaults everything goes back. so try to connect with cat5 cable and in IE link bar type 192.168.2.1 and you will get the set screen of the router admin and password sholud get you in the you can look at the settings wep, etc. then change you pc to match
