I had my Network Admin key in a WiFi password for my work network. Is there any way to decode the password and see what was entered?

Any way to do it on a MacBookPro? I've tried the Keychain app, but when I unlock the encryption, it only shows me part of the password. I happen to know there are symbols in the password, but they don't show when I use Keychain.

I wanted to restore and upgrade to 1.1.3, but I'll lose my WiFi access if I do.

Thanks in advance!

Depending on the encryption type used, the answer goes from absolutely to no freakin' way. If it's WEP, sure. WPA/WPA2 PSK, maybe. WPA2-Enterprise, likely not.

not worth it

I wouldn't even try as it is prob against your technical use policy...if your company has one. Why don't you just have the guy re-add the password after the update? There is a reason they don't give this information out.
