Default Forgotten Security Key

Hey everybody. Hope you can help me.

I have had a NetGear WGR614 v7 Router for about two years now. For some reason, when I came home from work one day, my laptop would not connect to the router, and I was told that my network security key was incorrect. I have no idea how this happened, but I can't remember for the life of me what that key might be. When I try to access, I get: Security Type-WPA Personal, Encryption Type-TKIP, and my network security key which I no longer remember.

I can still connect to the router through with the wire, but...that kind of defeats the purpose of the laptop (also, I'd like to connect the Wii I just got to the router, and that's why I am more concerned suddenly).

So if anybody can help me find out how I can reset that information or find it on my laptop while I am connected, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Oh, I have no idea where the manual is. I bought this thing quite a while ago.
