I have already set up a wireless card with a WEP key and SSID and everything. I want to set up another, unfortunately the networking software (cisco aironet) hides the WEP key after entry as password characters. It is a 128 character long key and I want to recover it, how can I do this?

You'll probably need to start over then. Unless you wanna hack it.

If you want to hack it:

Depending on your card/drivers/OS, you may be able to use this utility to view what's under the *'s to get your WEP Key.

What do you mean by not being able to connect to the access point?
Have you tried to connect through telnet session or with a console cable?
If you know the IP address you can perform a telnet session to the access point and reset the WEP key.
If you don't know it you can see the MAC address on the back of the access point and if it gets IP through DHCP find its IP, if not - scan the IP range and find it again.
