Finding your own WEP key?

So, I am in a room with two laptops, one has access to the secure network and the other doesnt...

The router is in a locked room somewhere..

Anyone know how I could find out the WEP key from the laptop that has access?

I've seen the hardcore ways of doin it (packet sniffing with some crazy linux distro) but there has to be another way...

Isn't the purpose of WEP to disallow people to gain access to their WAP without permission? I suppose your asking how to do something illegal, which I think would be disallowed here.

Finding your 'own' WEP key huh? Well, if it's your 'own' you shouldn't have any problems. All you have to do is log on to 192.168.1.1 and type in your username/pw and go to the 'security' or WEP section.

If you cannot access this - then you are most likely attempting to access someone's private network - illegaly.
If the other laptop has access, you should use that computer to access the router settings and get your WEP there.

It can be either/or.

As others have said, if this is truly your wireless network, then enter the router configuration from the computer which has access, and you should be able to change/view it from there.
