Lost your WEP key? You have to change it via you router's interface. For Linksys routers, this is usually done by going to the address http://192.168.1.1/. For other routers, view this list: http://www.speedguide.net/broadband-list.php. Look for your router and scroll down. Default IP address is what you're looking for. Note that some routers have this information under it.
Is your router asking for an administrator password? It can also be found in the link above. If that does not work, Try pressing the reset button on your router. This is a deep button behind the router that can only be pressed by a pointed object such as a pen. This will reset settings of the router, including the administrator password. After that, try the default password you found. Note that resetting will remove the WEP password that you set before and you have to set it again. For maximum security, consider switching to WPA. Good luck with your router!
