How to find my own security key?

The reason I am asking, is that the wireless on my printer can no longer find my wireless network, and I was thinking that it might be a setting on the router. If anyone can tell me how to do this, that would be great. My printers instructions say that if the router does not have a WPS button, (which it does not) to add the PIN, which I have. But to where? :o
