Default Retrieving Network Key

I just got a new Macbook, and the current laptop that I have is connected to the internet using Intel Proset/Wireless. I don't remember my network key. I can't get on the internet on the mac and I need to find the network key.

Is there any program that will allow me to get the network key off of the Intel Proset program?

Type in 192.168.2.1 in your address bar, and look in your routers Security settings.

why are you assuming the default gateway is 192.168.2.1?
either double click the wireless icon and go to support to find the default gateway (xp), or go to start>run, then type "cmd", then type "ipconfig" (works with xp and vista)

use that to get to the router setup then do what hascet said

don't forget when doing the above since your not able to connect to the network wirelessly you'll have to plug an ethernet cable into your computer to do the configuration.
