Windows 7: accessing my school's secured wifi network

accessing my school's secured wifi network

so what i want to do is be able to go on the internet on my phone/ipod etc using one of my schools wifi networks. my high school has 3 different wifi networks, but the all 3 of them are secured, and require a password to connect to, and none of us [students] know the password. [i assume] these wifi networks are mainly used for the school's computers, and i was thinking maybe there was some kind of way i can find the password(s) using one of these computers.

obviously though the student do not have administrative privileges, but i DID happen to find a way to access the command prompt (using a .bat file). and im sure that there has to be some kind of way i can use the commands to show me the wifi password, but i have no idea what the commands i would need to enter are. if anyone knows how to do this PLEASE tell me, i would be really happy even if i am taking the risk of possibly getting suspended if they found out o.o..

Your schools wifi is secure for a reason and if you want the password ask for it. I doubt anyone here will advise you on how to HACK it since it is probably illegal to do so.

Pal sorry to say but there's a reason why schools don't allow you to access the wi-fi this can cause all kinds of problems for the people trying to give you a decent education. The teachers and IT staff are only looking after yours and their own best interests.
Trying to circumnavigate their security is only going to break the rules that they have put in place to try and protect the systems that they have spent allot of time, money and resources on. And I can't see many people wanting to assist you in breaking school rules

We will not provide assistance in this matter. Schools and other businesses have every right to control who has and who has not got access to their network, both wired and wireless. This is a matter for you to take up with them, although if you do, don't expect a favourable response.
