You have two methods of finding or restoring this key.

1: log into the device. If you have a PC already working through this device, go to that pc, click on Start then RUN. Tpe CMD and hit enter. this will opena black window. type ipconfig. you should see an entry for the Gateway IP address. this should be the IP address of that router. Now open Internet explorer and enter the ip in the address field (not a search filed). hit enter and see if you end up with a menu. if so, you will be able to navigate to the wireless security and adjust or find that security key. If prompted for a password, you are in trouble. You'll then need to do option 2.

2: If you cant get intot the device configuration as described above, you can reset the unit to factory defaults( usually clearling the key altogether). This can be done by presssing the reset button for about 10 seconds (small pin or paperclip actuated button on the device.

Since you did not specify the model, I cant previide more details.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

I cant connect thru my netgear router model wgr614v7


If you hook your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable you don't need the key. You can log into the router and change the WEP Key to anything you want, but u have to be directly connected to the router not going through the wireless.

How to connect maxg with a my netgear broadband router


Try to turn off the DHCP server in the secound router, that way it'll be a swich technically, and set the secound router's fix ip address to something different, because I'm quite sure that both routers have the same 192.168.0.1 IP address and that's nogood.
Set it to anyting from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254

Get booted off


Ok. i have the exact same problem, but i use linksys. I have has geeksquad and they dont know. I have only one option i havent tried. try to just hook up the modem to your router only. Buy a wireless adapter for your home computer. If it doesnt work, return it for a refund. I feel for you guys because i have been going through hell and it drives me crazy that even geeksquad doesnt know. (By the way dont buy that garbage when the people say you need a new router, because they just want more money.)
