How can I access a secured wireless network without having or knowing the security key/code?

Okay, I am going to assume that you are testing your own network. If that is the case, you will need a computer, wireless card and software. Some encryption standards such as WEP are easier to break than WAP or WPA2. To attempt to test the strength of your own network, check out BackTrack's free tools available on their website.
