    Help please!!! I've had a G1 for the past 18 months and have just upgraded to a Xperia X10, only problem is I don't have a note of my wep/wpa key for the dodgy router at work, I know I keyed it into my old G1 (which I still have) but can't find a way to display it in clear text. Any ideas???

    Contact IT for your work. They should be able to give it to you.

    Very true. I've got the WPA key for my work network and I'm not supposed to have it.

    Look at the router,usually the wep key will be printed somewhere on it.

    Thanks everyone for your replies but this is the dodgy router at work which is installed in the false ceiling. I was given a note of the key last year on a post it note for a visitor which I later binned (Doh!) after entering in the details on my G1. To get this key back I would have to raise a change with a valid business reason and the change request goes to the infosec manager. So you can see the quandry I'm in!! It would be fine if I got a decent 3G signal but I'm in a big concrete building ;-(
