WEP encryption can now be cracked in under a minute. The only known crack for WPA is a brute force attack. So, as long as you have a strong password you'll be fine. Go with WPA.

Cool, that's what I thought, but a co-worker tried to tell me otherwise. Works out nicely since I can never get WEP to work :)

lol. there are programs that work well at cracking wpa but it takes much longer and more packets are needed. theres just so many more ways to crack wep and it is much quicker. a lot of people only use unsecured or wep so its a hackers dream come true. especially with bt homehubs, it has wep pre applied and people dont know how to change it.
although to be fair youve gotta be unluky to have a hacker near you, but its not worth the risk
