Hey guys, need your help on this issue. My mate entered his wireless key on my macbook in windows because it wouldn't work in Leopard, now he wont tell me his wireless because he's being a wanker.

 

Is there a way to find out the key that he entered on windows? I'm a {censored} noob when it comes to networking. really, really am.

 

thanks

Don't blame it on him. I think he was experiencing a few errors whilst he was posting and didn't know if the post had been submitted. I took care of the other topics :D

well if your friend was dumb enough you can connect with an Ethernet cable and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and type admin for user name and admin again for password. Then find the reset all settings button and bam. No more network encryption. no more password needed.

The Wireless Network Setup Wizard in the control panel should allow you to export settings to a plain text file.

 

Or, open Regedit and look at the keys under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WZCSVC\Parameters\Interfaces

 

If you'd prefer a GUI tool there's one here:

(I've not used this GUI tool method, but it looks pretty straightforward.)
