there are two keys on the router:
1. the password you need to log in to the router to make changes
2. the encryption keyword used to encrypt the wireless transmissions (WEP or WPA key)

if you have a PC that is currently connecting via wireless you can use this program to display the wireless key
https://download.cnet.com/s/wirelesskeyview/

you can also use the reset switch (a small hole in the back of the router) to reset the router to its factory defaults. You then can set a new key on the router and PCs.

Good Luck

If you log on to management page of Linksys WRT54G router, you can go to Wireless->Wireless Security tab to locate wireless encryption key.
