Linksys Router Password Retrieval Question

Linksys Router Password Retrieval Question

Linksys Router Password Retrieval Question

Giving this question a shot on these forums--all my other questions were answered in the past by knowledgable people so I assume there is a possible solution for this:

I am having a similar situation to the member NetConsultant where the IT guy who set up our network no longer works for us.  He also has not answered any of our attempts to contact him.  I've been able to go behind him and gain access to admin controls on our server computer, gain access to our database, Micros RES 3700 client, Outlook e-mail etc. but I need the WEP key to our wireless router and I have no idea what alphanumeric / word he used as a key to generate the entry codes.  I also am needing access to the router but cannot risk resetting any of the settings at this point.  I have only a rudamentary understanding of networking but have told my bosses I would try to gain a solution before we have to hire a temp IT guy to reset the router and reconfigure the settings.
BTW, I have already tried all default passwords and logins to no avail.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I am just trying to do everything possible before we're forced to reset the router to reconfigure the settings back.

RE: Linksys Router Password Retrieval Question

Press the reset button on the router for 30 seconds then reconfig.
