Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome or Internet Explorer and type in the IP address for your router,and press Enter.
A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press Enter again
Username and Password can be located on the side or bottom of your router
Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase.
Use WPA because it provides better security.
Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.
Save settings and close your browser.

If you don't know or can't find the password then on the back of the router there is a reset button that you hold in for 30 seconds and it will reset the router to factory settings and the routers address is usually on the bottom of the router.

You can just get the password by going to the website It will request you for a username and password...The username is admin and password is password. Then you will see the option call wireless settings. Click on it and you will see the passphrase
