If you look carefully you'll see a small reset hole - usually at the back of the router. Insert a straightened paper clip, or something similar and press gently for a couple of seconds - the router must be turned on when you do this.

Now you can start again - follow the instructions that came with the router to set a new password.

Yep, WEP encryption is not secure, should use WPA2 encryption on wireless network if possible.
