A while back there was a discussion about WEP on the squeezebox and how it
seems to require "shared key" authentication. Is there any way it can work
with "open system"?

I believe "open system" is actually a bit more secure (despite its name) and
prefer to use it.

I'm going to make it automatically attempt both - in the mean time,
please use shared key authentication.

You are right, shared authentication is not any more secure. It doesn't
matter so much though, since breaking the WEP key using AirSnort is
easy enough already.
