How to retrieve existing netgear wireless router security password

I want to allow other computers & printers access to the wireless netgear router but I cannot recall the password (not the default password) and cannot find how to access this info or the control panel for the router that would give me access to this password. Any suggestions beyond resetting the router to the default and having to reinstall all of the info? Thanks.
