a friend of mine helped me reinstall my Acer Aspire laptop with Windows Xp after it developed a virus which i could not get rid of. once installed, i attempted to connect to my Belkin wireless router, however i was informed it had wpa-psk system and i needed to input a ASCII code or a hexadecimal code. i do not know the codes, and do not have access to a computer that will be able to connect to find out. I am unsure what to do. please help.

PS. i apologise but i am not very computer literate so i would appreciate step by step basic guides.

thanks

Does the router have a reset button? Might just be a pin hole. Hold it in for 20 seconds it should return to default settings.

Use an ethernet cable to access the routers wireless security section it will show you the encryption key it is currently using
