Hello there everyone, I have a question to ask (Obvious, I know.)

I was wondering if it is possible via software, script or simple point and click process to retrieve a WEP key without having any access to your wireless router. The reason I need to know this is because I run a PC repair shop and I would LOVE to offer "loaner" pc's when A customer comes in and drops off a computer for repair. But as you know many people have to get on the internet, many of which have wireless internet connections and of which many do not know the WEP key or even the name of the network they connect to.

So again, in summary I am looking for a way to do this in the following order.
  • Retrieve Wireless Network Information from Customers computer (Network Name, Encryption Type, Key/Password)
  • Move said information to our loaner computer
Thanks friends!
