Hold and Press the reset button at the back of the unit for more than 10 secs and then release. This will bring the unit to factory default settings.

Are you saying you cannot access your router page like or are you saying your forget your WEP key for wireless?
If you cannot Access your Router page Then a hard reset in order and there should be a black button somewhere on the back you can press and it should reset to system defaults, the password should be admin
If you dont remember your Wep key, go to your Router Page open it up And turn off the Internet security then Turn it back on while changing the password

New laptop want to connect but forgot key

what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..
type in the internet toolbar
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...

I dont remember password

In order to know your password you have to:

1) Use some program to reveal the pass
2) Get access to your router

To get access to your router do this

1) Open your browser
Type .......

user = admin
pass= (blank) no password

hit enter

Once inside go to Wireless and see which is your WEP password

That's it

If your wireless router have a different pass than default you need to reset the router
