    finding wireless password in vista?

    basically, I've just come home to visit my family. They have wireless for the first time but don't have the password written down anywhere (I guess they hired someone to come in and set up the home network with all their Vista computers automatically entering the password on startup).

    Right now I'm on one of the family computers but I'd much rather get my own laptop online. Anybody know if there's somewhere within Vista to see the wireless password?

    cheers

    Press the reset button on the router and make a new password.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    That program worked like a charm!

    On a sidenote, it was nice to fully appreciate why I switched to Ubuntu and went through the trouble of learning to troubleshoot Linux..... VISTA SUCKS!!!!
