Default Finding router passphrase

Hi all:
I was wondering if anyone knew how to find the router passphrase for my WGR614v7 54 Mbps router? I had some trouble setting it up initially, and needed the help of the Netgear support center. Apparently, he made the passphrase my current phone number. I have since changed phone numbers and cannot remember the passphrase. I have a handheld device that can connect wirelessly to the router, but I don't know the passphrase.
Is there a way to find it by looking on my computer and not having to reset all the settings? I don't want to have to reset everything else that wirelessly connects.

Sorry for the length. Any help is appreciated.

If you log into the router you should be able to read the passphrase in the wireless section.

You log in typically by going to http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and entering the user ID / password.
