I'm sorry, but this just sounds like you want to use this Whoppix security auditing tool to illegally break into other people's wireless networks. And no one here is going to help you with that.
On the other hand, if you are really worried about the security of your own wifi network, then you are far better off using a better security method, such as WPA, since WEP is almost completely useless.
I hope that helps.

Then I have good news: you don't need to decrypt a WEP key to start learning about WEP. If you're *really* excited about the WEP technology in particular, there are many websites that you can easily find with any decent internet search-engine, that explain the workings (and insecurity) of WEP in excruciating detail. I hope that helps and I wish you best of luck with your learning experience.
