	It was set to use dynamic WEP. I'm not using rekeying right
now, since I've had problems in the past where it would cause the
connection to just drop on the client side until I removed and
reinserted the card.

	I'd love to try WAP, but I can't find a Windows driver for
Prism 2 cards that support it.
