I need to retrieve the SSID of a wifi network that is not in range from either an iPhone or an old hard drive.

I need to configure a new device to connect to this network when the person I give it to returns there. I previously connected to this network from an iPhone 4 that is running iOS 5, but I can't figure out how I can retrieve it without being in range of the network. I'm willing to jailbreak it if I absolutely have to.
I also have a hard drive that was the OS drive for a Windows 7 laptop that has also connected to this network. I don't have the machine itself, but can hook the drive up to my new machine and browse the content if the SSID is stored somewhere on there.
