    I have a Netgear wireless router modem with wpa enabled. To change wpa key I
    assume I log into the router and change the key in the appropriate section.
    Having changed key how does the new key get assigned to each wireless laptop
    and other wired devices ?

  2. You don't need to change a key on the wired devices, WPA encryption is only
    relevant to the wireless connections. On those, you will have to change the
    WPA key on each of the connecting wireless devices individually.
