  • The reason that your router is showing that security, is because someone used OneCare on one of the network PCs to secure the router. On that PC, open OneCare, change settings, Firewall, Advanced Settigs, Network Connections, Details. Your network key needed for other devices will be shown.
    Alternatively, you can reset your router. You probably have a button on the router that will reset it when depressed for several seconds. Refer to the router instructions for how to do this and also how to manually set up security for your connection.
