Recovering a Router's Lost Security Key
If you have LastPass or some other password manager, losing or forgetting the security key to your wireless router is not a problem (nor losing or forgetting any password). But if not, and you do lose or forget the security key, you will not be able to add any devices to your wireless network. No need to panic. Just go The Google and put in "How to Recover a Lost Network Key for a [Brand] Router" (putting in the brand helps because different routers have different solutions). You will then find step-by-step instructions for recovering the security key or, in the alternative, how to re-set the router to its initial factory settings and then you can re-setup the network with a new security key.
