Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting you today.
Can you tell me the brand and model number of your router please? Thank you...
Linksys Wireless G

Here is how to retriever your current password:
Use the computer directly plugged into the router, open internet explorer and enter this web address:
A login screen should appear and autofill - just click to enter. If the login fails, leave the username balnk and enter admin for the password.
You are now inside the setup pages. Click on Wireless - a sub menu will appear below it - click on Wireless Security. This is the wireless setup info for your network - your current key/passphrase to get onto your wireless network is listed here. You can leave it and use it to connect your other pcs.
If you change it, you will have to reenter it on other pcs the next time they attempt to connect to the network.
