Question about NetGear WNR2000 Wireless Router
There is no default WPA key. WPA key is an encryption key valid for your wireless network only.
The encryption key is usually defined by whever did set up or is managing your network.
If you have access to the router you can see or modify the existing WPA key using an Ethernet cable and your browser.
Connect a computer to the Netgear router using a cable like this:
Once you are connected and the local network (LAN ) led on the router is steady (this will take less than one minute), open Internet Explorer.
On Internet Explorer top bar type the router IP. Default one for this router will be 192.168.1.1.
Before opening the router control panel, you will be asked for router ID and password.
Default are the following:
Default admin username, admin.
Default admin password, password.
If default password does not work, then you will have to reset the router and setup router from scrap. At that point better calling service provider to assist with your broadband setup and personal details.
If default ID and password are working, as supposed to if you did your router setup and did not change them, you will access the router control panel.
On the control panel choose Wireless, then security, and find the WPA key in there, or find the options to setup WPA or WEP encryption.

After logging in. Look at the main menu
on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you
can check the Wireless Key(For WEP you need Key 1,2,3 or 4 whichever is selected... For WPA you need passphrase) or you can setup
wireless security from there if you haven't done so.
~~Hope this helps~~

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.
