I will try this out and see how things go.

I have this option as well as 128 WEP and 64 WEP:

WPA-PSK (no server)
Wireless Protected Access with a Pre-Shared Key: The key is a password, in
the form of a word, phrase or series of letters and numbers. The key must be
between 8 and 63 characters long and can include spaces and symbols. Each
client that connects to the network must use the same key (Pre-Shared Key).
More Info

What do you think?

PS * Like your ³work² in Macworld * Keep it up!
