How do I find out my WPA key?

What is the simplest method for finding out your WPA key preferably without phoning a company up on a high rate?

I have a Netgear router for my Xbox Live but my Xbox is trying to connect to my old crappy Belkin router and is now telling me to enter my WPA key everytime I select the Netgear router from the Network Configuration menu. It's driving me absolutely insane!

Thanks! I found out that the WPA key is your PassPhrase. You log into the router log in site like you mentioned, go to security/wireless settings and find the WPA key via that method.

First thing I would try would be to open Firefox/Internet explorer type in your Default Gateway IP address, usually 192.168.1.1 This should bring you to a log in screen for your router. for Netgear try User: admin Password: password, if that doesn't work try leaving password blank. once you are logged into the router navigate to a settings menu, and then locate wireless settings, then find something akin to security or advanced security, along those lines. and then navigate to network authorization or authentication or something similar. then look at the setting for WPA encryption. some wording and things may be different on your particular router, I personally use Linksys. I hope this helps!
