Get it from your router. I believe it's encrypted in the keychain so there's no real way of getting it from your mac, although I may be wrong.

You can try going to Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access, go to Passwords, Application and find the entry for your SSID (network name). Double click on it, and then click "Show password" enter your password when prompted and it should give the password in the box.

 

Other then that, the best place to go is the router config page and it should give you the key, usually their not obfuscated but some are, if it is then you can just change it if your only dealing with a small number of computers that would need to be reconfigured.
