I've lost security key

My daughter is home from college and I want to provide access to our WRT54G but I cannot find the security key to allow her to connect.
I cannot even remember the source of the key. Is it a number from the box the router came in or something else?
Help - I'm so frustrated as to my inability to remember this!!

Re: I've lost security key

Your encryption key is located in the router.
Login to your router at
Go to the "Security" tab, "Wireless Security" subtab.
Here you will see your encryption method and key.
For WEP, enter "key 1"  into your computer.
For WPA or WPA2, enter the key  (also called password or passphrase)  into your computer.
