Hi, I am good with computers and networking, but I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to pull a WPA/WPA2 key from a windows xp machine, I assume that windows must store the ASCII key somewhere in order to authenticate on the network as long as the user has the password stored. Thanks to all....

Well, you can use this program: http://www.gtopala.com/ to find out a ton of information about your computer - including saved passwords including the WPA passkey (i'm pretty sure.) If you go to "Secrets" in the side column, there should be an entry for something like this.

hmm...thanks for the tip, not exactly what I needed, but I have the feeling that this long slew of hex numbers is the best I am going to be able to get

I've just run the program from the link above, and it does not show me my WEP key!
