Connect to the router from any computer by ethernet cable, *NOT* wirelessly, and go into its configuration pages by typing its IP address ( for DG834 routers) into your web browser.

Go into the "wireless" settings page. Unfortunately, Netgear routers mask the encryption key so you cannot read it directly. You therefore need to create a new 'key', make a note of it and enter that key when connecting again from Laptop and PS3, as well as the Wii.
