    Seen this? http://wifinetnews.com/archives/004428.html

    "The folks who wrote tinyPEAP, a firmware replacement for two Linksys router models that has on-board RADIUS authentication using 802.1X plus PEAP, released a WPA cracking tool."

    This is not a danger for those who can't spell.

    The cracking tool is a dictionary attack. If the password is un-spellable, then it won't be in the dictionary.

    But all you really need is a long none dictionary password.

    May I suggest using a 63 random character password generated by Gibson Research
