how to find wireless keys on maemo

Over time one collects lots of WEP and WPA keys with mobile devices like nokia´s n800 or n810. Often you want to use these keys with other devices or need them after reinstalling the OS.

For maemo based devices like the n800 and the n810 it is quite easy to recover the previously stored wireless keys, since they are stored unencrypted in gconf. Just open an xterm and enter the following line:

gconftool-2 -R /system/osso/connectivity/IAP |egrep ‘(pass|name|wlan_wepkey)’

The output you get is a list containing all wireless keys and network names you stored on the device. Note that the output contains the key first and the network name is being displayed a line below the corresponding key.
