    Read the manual of your router.

    You need to connect to the administrative interface of your router and either read the current wlan password or set a new, known, value that you can then enter into both your computers (and save for future reference.)

    Depending on model, the default web address of your router and its default password may be different, so check the manual (which you can download from linksys)

    Oh, while you're at it, change the administrative password of your router, as well.

    (As a last resort, you may also totally reset the router, but then you need to configure it all over from start.)

    If you can't get it in plain text in your settings from the old computer.
