Here is a situation: a wireless router uses WEP for security. The WEP key is remembered on several laptops, but no one can remember the key. Is there a way to find out the WEP key without resetting the router? Resetting the router will affect all the laptops and it will be the last resort.

Thanks in advance!

Wireless settings may not be visible unless you login into the router using a wired connection.
And even if the router permits looking at/changing the key in wireless mode, it's an insecure thing to do.
