If you currently have a PC that is connected via wireless you can download/run this program which will display the key ("password phrase").

Good Luck - please tape a note to the bottom of the router.

You can reset the router to factory defaults. Just use the "reset" hole in the back of the router. Press a pen in the hole for 30 seconds, unplug the router wait 1 minute and plug the power cord back in. You can find the Linksys default ID and key at their web site.

Good Luck
