Ok, the best way is log in to this wireless router management page, after that locate the correct network key in wireless network setup section. Read the router manual for more info.

Wired or wireless?
What is the model number of the router?
What is the exact error message?
Where did you move the computers? Across the room or across the state?

the linksys model number is: wrt12on . the router is wired to the internet ,the laptop is wireless. I moved the computers from my winter home in Arizona to my summer home in Canada the 'error' message is a pop up when I try to connect to the internet that says" the network'blah,blah blah; requires a network key,blah,blah,blah....type in the network key..."

Then use a wire to connect to it. It should allow you to then log on to the web based interface. Get the owners manual for exact details.

Q. "What is the exact error message?"

A. " the network'blah,blah blah; requires a network key,blah,blah,blah....type in the network key..."

Somehow I don't think that's the exact error message.

Also since you changed countries and isp's, did you check with your provider for the connecting parameters.

Yep. Suspect the problem is more to do with WAN settings than either LAN or WLAN
