What is the make and model number of your router? It should have a manual that tells you how to connect to it's administrative pages which is where you will find things like security type (WPA, WPA PSK, WPA TKIP. WEP) and the security key needed to access the router.

The HUAWEI HG521 User Manual is here: http://www.huaweidev...eeId=3342&tab=0

It says:

Step 1 Log in to the Web-based configuration utility of the HG521.
1. Launch the Internet Explorer on your computer. Enter http://192.168.1.1
in the address bar, and then press Enter.
2. In the displayed dialog box, enter the user name and the password, and
then click OK.
By default, both the user name and the password are admin. After the user name and
the password are verified, you can access the Web-based configuration utility.

Look through the wireless settings to get the info you need. Use the manual to find where to look if needed.

Download it again, only this time see if it says where it gets downloaded. Maybe do a Save as instead of a Save?

The file is called EchoLife%20HG521%20Home%20Gateway%20User%20Guide.pdf so you could search for that via Start / Search.
