I have a WZR G300N router and have never needed a password for the computers in the house. Now I am trying to set up a new Kindle and cannot without a password. Any suggestions on where I could find said password, please?

The "key" is written on a sticker on the router itself.

Thanks for your reply. The sticker on the router says the password is 'Blank'. I tried this putting that into the Kindle (not that I thought it would work!) and it didn't work! The Kindle is still asking for a password...

Ah sorry, i thought you were refering to a different router. The password would of been set by yourself or whoever setup the router. To change it do the following:
#1. Connect your PC or Laptop via an Ethernet Cable into one of the LAN ports located at the back of the Buffalo Router.
#2. Open Internet Explorer and enter the following address, 192.168.11.1 and press enter, you will then receive a request for a username and password, please enter root as the username , leave the password blank and click ok
#3. Once logged into the router select Wireless Config -> Security
#4. Set the Authentication to WPA PSK and the Encryption to TKIP
#5. Where it says "Pre Shared key" enter a new wireless password (minimum 8 characters in length) and click Apply -> Apply and wait 2 minutes.
The Pre shared key you entered will be your new password and this would need to be entered on all devices wanting to connect to the wireless network.
