To change your security key, click the Account Info link on the top of any personalized property (such as My Yahoo!) and then click the Change My Security Key link. You are then prompted to enter your old security key and choose a new one.

Re: How do i change my security key

Follow these steps (assuming your gateway is 192.168.1.1)

1)Go to your internet browser (IE, Firefox, etc)
2)In the address bar at the top, type 192.168.1.1 or what your gateway is, another common one if that doesn't work is 192.168.2.1
3)Enter your password to access your router
4)Go to wireless settings on your router.
5) Change password.
