All wireless keys are kept in your home directory in the .gconf tree.
So if you retained your home directory it would be there.
WPA, etc, encription is specified in nm-appplet under :
Connect to Other Wireless Network.

By the way, in my experience NM connects to the last network connected
to rather than the first one it finds (which in some internal list may
be the same thing).
