Most modern routers have a small recessed button on the back of the router. You'll need a paper clip to push that button in and hold it for about 10 seconds.

Need to unlock to use different network

If you're referring to "resetting" your wireless router, you only need to press a hidden button at the back of the router. Find a small hole at the back and press it using a thin object like toothpick or a wire. Press it for at least 15 seconds. After doing that, connect one PC to the router using LAN wire and log-in to the router's default address. Since you did not mention what modem you have, here are the options; Use default Username and Passwords to set up new Wireless Protocol. Here are possible options;
UN: admin PW: admin
UN: admin PW:
UN: admin PW: password
UN: admin PW: 1234
From here, if you can log-in to Router's IP, look for the Wireless configuration options. It will allow you to set Network Keys and other security options.
