don't know if i can help, but here are some remarks:
WPA2-PSK actually isn't a password, it's an indication of the type of protection that is being used on the wireless router.
maybe you can try to find out who's wifi-device it is that you try to connect on (can you monitor signal strenght? i'm on a mac so i have no idea
how wintendo does this, I know my mac allows this)
now most probably the password will contain either 5 or 13 characters. Most people are pretty stupid in the choice of password so if you have an idea
where the wifi is, do they have a dog? what are their names? These things can be used to guess.
a more profound thing to do, but a trick that will give away that someone hacked, is to try to find out the type of wifi-device used. Say it's a
DLink. Google for the default IP-number, use your browser to access the device (again, most people don't change the basic protection and what that is
is all over the web, once you know the brand of the device). Once you're in, just turn off the password protection. Maybe they will not notice.
but also bear in mind that this is illegal and it is possible to find out who's behind it, unless you use IP-hiders (and I'm not sure you can use
these to get into the device, never tested it)
probably some of the information i gave is not completely accurate, but at least it might give you some inspiration.
and - please excuse me for asking this - wouldn't it be easier to just get an account with an ISP yourself (or did i misunderstood your actual
or get a 3G modem in an USB-version. That's a pretty slow and expensive way to access the web, but at least you are within the law :-)
if this is rubbish to you, please neglect
