Spending 5 hours trying to figure out the wepkey

I am in Bahrain now for Eid Holiday.. I came here to visit my friend who is staying and studying there. She picked me up from the airport heading back to her apartment. when we reached there I remembered something important that have to be done through the Internet! I switched my laptop on trying to connect to the Internet via her wireless connection.

Me: what is your wep key?
Bhh: emmmm... try 0123456789

Me: it does not work!!

Bhh: then try 1234567890

Me: are you sure about the wep key?

Bhh: yes it was something like that!

Me: Ohh god... please, try to remember!

Bhh: Then try 0987654321 or 9876543210

Me: Comeon both are not working!

Bhh: I am not sure I cant remember!

Me: Ok lets go out for dinner and we will try to figure it out later!

Bhh: Ok

So we went out for dinner and did some grocery shopping together.. after that we returned back to here place.
I was trying to read the manual for "net gear access point" in order to solve this bothering problem.
She offered me her laptop, but I didn't really wanna use her laptop since I have to check some important issues from my own laptop where the passwords are stored there and couldn't really memorise them!
Again to the search process but this time trying to find out a software that might retrieves her wep key. it took me more than two hours searching for the right software for the retrieval process! until I found "wireless key view" for retrieving wep key passwords!

it was free of charge, a very simple software. I did the installation on her machine. and guess what was the password? 1234567891 !!!!!!!

I couldn't stop laughing and spend the entire day repeating the numbers in a loud voice!! again and again!

    the problem that I wasn't able to enter through the client ip address to change netgear password from there!! it was kinda risky to reset the router since my friend laptop and the only laptop that was fully connected to the Internet. 7aram akharib 3leeha her connection :)
