Any way of finding out router wireless key?

I have just done my quarterly full system wipe on my laptop,and have lost my little sticker with the router details on.Is there any way of finding out what wpa key is by going into the 192.168------ router set up number?

Paulstung, the best way is to log onto the router and then view the wpa key. If you don't have access to the router directly then ask the person who owns the router.

Otherwise be nice to the owner of the router.

You could always take the opportunity to change the key to a new one.

I keep mine on a USB drive as a text file. It's then just a matter of copying and pasting it when required.
