Technicolor Router Access Key

I just connected a new printer to my WiFi network.  O found 2 "Keys" on the back of the Technicolor Router - a 10 digit "Key" and an 8 digit "Access Key".  What is each for?  Need to know so visitors can access home network.

You can find it underneath the router and will be labelled as 'network password' 'network key' or 'wireless key' or similar.
Itt is not 'WPS code' or 'admin password'

UPDATE:  The access key could be the Wireless key, the 'key' would likely to be the WPS key.
Try each and see which one works, this can be a bit easier for you.

Re: Technicolor Router Access Key

A large rectangular box on the base of the TG582n router should contain text headed Wireless Network
The line below that is Name (SSID) which will be PlusnetWirelessxxxxxx
The last  line shows Key which is 10 hexadecimal characters (0-9 A-F). This is the WPA2 key that needs to be entered to connect wireless devices.
