How to find the key or password:

Please, follow these steps on the computer(like your desktop computer) which is connected to the router using an ethernet cable. However, if you have only laptop, please connect an extra cable from router to laptop

Also, please make sure that Modem must be connected to the
Internet/wan port of the router.

Open an Internet Explorer browser and type the router IP address
