I have an N600 Belkin Wireless Router. At the very bottom of it, there was a paper card attached to it that had the security key for the router: a requirement to be able to set it up on your PC. Actually I've been using it for several months without problems, and I was doing one of my routine password changes to the wireless security. However, in doing this. but when I entered the new password, it also wanted the security key, something which no longer seems to be under the router, where I last kept it. How can I retrieve my security key Please help
