I do not want to use unauthorized network without permission. I can ask permission from Administration, but the guy that knows the key is not here. If there is no way to do it, then I rest my case! The person can die and then the key is lost to the network. There has to be a way to do it. The computer could access the network before. it was set up by wireless dhcp, but now someone who manages the network put a key and many users(teachers) cannot access the internet. The person that takes care of that is on vacation. Is there a way or not?

Despite what others are saying in general the answer is no. It is
equivalent to asking how oyu can login to an account someone who is not
available to give you his passwd. The answer is you can't without
resorting to hacking.
