usually Linksys puts the default key on a lable on the bottom of the router. turn it over and take a look.

DMB, just to clarify: you have a Linksys Wireless router, and one of your computers is connected to it. You are now trying to connect a second computer wirelessly, and do not have the WEP / WPA key required to connect. Is that right?
If so, try going to the computer that is connected, and open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.). Then type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. This should take you to the login screen for your router. It will ask for a username and password. If you haven't changed the defaults, the username will either be <blank> or "default", and the password will be "default".
Once you're into the router, you can view your wireless settings to see what WEP / WPA key is set.
