Retrieve/Decrypt WEP key?

OK here's my situation:

- I just bought a new hard drive and am doing a fresh windows reinstall etc so need to install all my drivers etc from scratch, including my netgear WG311v3 wireless network card.
- I connect to the net via my flatmate's wireless hub. He is overseas for the next 3 weeks, so I don't know where to find the plain text WEP key in his room to re-enter for my new install.
- The key is in the registry, but is encrypted.

Is there a way to decrypt the key, or will I have to wait 3 weeks for my flatmate to get back?

Can I just plug in the encrypted string to that app for decryption?

It will retrieve the HEX string for you :)

Pretty easy to do. Theres a button to enumerate the keys stored on your machine.

Cheers
