Question about Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station
in order to get your WPA key on your router you will need to access your internal router configuration. To do this you will need first your default gateway IP address, that is your IP address of your router.
If you are not sure what it is you will have to check your network settings, and under TCP/IP look for Default Gateway.
Once you have the IP enter it into your web browser address bar and hit enter. You will then be prompted for a login to your router which should be default unless you set it. The default is usually "default" or "admin" or "password" or some variation.
After this you should browse to your router security settings section and under WPA enter in a shared key. Write it down somewhere safe, and you are done!
Hope this helps, and please take the time to vote!

I understand that you need to check the security key so as to connect the computer with the router's wireless network.
In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase (or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.
