I assume n.s.k = Network security key?

If it is, then you will have to go onto a computer that is on a wired connection, and go to the routers page and change the password, or find out what it is

Intel i7 4770k 3.50ghz, 32gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (8x4 kit), 2 x 2TB WD Black HHD, nVidia 770GTX 4gb OC, Asus Z87-A Motherboard, running Windows 7 64 bit.

It could also be that the mini doesn't support the network security you are using on the router.

Also some wireless software makes you choose what kind of encryption you are using and you might need to change it so that it knows you are using 26 (seems like it should be 28) bit encryption and not 13 bit.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
