Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
If you mean the password to login to the router, it is usually "admin" for the username, and "password" for the password, without the quotes, of course. Some of the various versions stray from this standard, so if that does not work, let me know the version.
If you set a password that you can not remember, you only alternative would be to reset the router using the reset button on the back, and then log on and reconfigure it.
If you mean the Encryption key to setup a laptop to access the internet via the router, just log in using the info above, and go to the Wireless Security settings page. This will list the encryption key - though some routers only show a row of dots, instead of the actual key. If this is the case you can at least change the key, note what you are changing it to, and you can then type in that key when connecting to the access point from the computer.

Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.
When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.
Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.
Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.
Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.
Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.
