This is the wireless encryption key. Follow my directions that I posted here to get some instructions on how to locate it and/or change it.

The concept is the same. You have to log in to your router's control panel to locate the Wireless Encryption Key (which you are referencing as a, "License Key"). In this same region you will be able to change any settings on the wireless encryption and even change your password.

Let us know how it turns out and if we can assist you further.

check if this problem is with both wired and wireless computers, if not with the wired..only wireless has problems, check if you have any other wireless device operating in the same frequency of the router..if s, turn off other devices and check b.cos that me interfere your w/ls connection, if wired is having the same problem, connect modem straight to the pc and observe the connection, so that you can isolate problem..

I would also recommend backing up the settings of the router, this should be within the settings menu somewhere, so as you can just restore the backup next time theres a fault.
