Hi there, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with that today. In order to retrieve the access key from your Netgear router (wireless modem), please follow these steps on a computer which is connected to the Internet through the router, or at least connected to the router.

1) Open an internet browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. It should be a seperate window from the one you are communicating to me through.

2) In the browser address bar, type and press Enter on your keyboard. You should get a login prompt. If you don't, try

3) At the login prompt, enter admin for the user name and password for the password.

4) You should now see the router's administration page. There will be a blue column on the left that has "Setup Wizard" at the top. Look down the list and find "Wireless Settings".

5) Click on "Wireless Settings" and on the resulting page, you will see you access key. It is at the bottom of the screen under "Security Encryption (WEP) Key" - Use the code in Key 1 position.

Please let me know if you have any problems doing these steps, or if you have any additional questions. I'd be happy to continue to assist.
