Hope one of you kind folk can help.

Ubuntu Dapper, kernel 2.6.15-26-686
wpa_supplicant v0.4.8
D-Link DWL-G650M PCMCIA wireless card using D-Link Windows XP driver

'8-Hoppner' is my Billion router; 'linksys' is my neighbour's unsecured WAP.

What is a WPA/RSN IE?  Should my router be providing one when I tell
it to use WPA2?

Thanks,
Stephen
