Question about Vizio XWR100 Wireless Router
Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?
Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.
If the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some additional software.
For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

If you can't retrieve those passwords from your computer, you may need to reset the router to its factory default, and then reinstall/reconfigure the unit. There is a "reset" button on the back of the router unit. For details on resetting the router, see the owner's manual (pp. 3 and 13):
