What is my wpa key


Quote:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "linksys" key xxxxxxxxx
I am using wpa2 and always have problem knowing what is my wpa2 key.

My original pass-phrase is "the3l1ttlep1ggyn1badwolf"

How can I convert the pass-phrase to its equivalent key.

Surely the key should be shown in your router, get it from there.
