    Anyway to use WPA with SB 1.0?

    I'm happy with my SB 1, but my wife's IT department insists on WPA for connecting her laptop to their VPN. Is there a way to use WPA with the SB 1.0, or must I upgrade to the 3?

    No, there's no way to use WPA with the SB1. I don't recall if it's a limitation of the wireless card, or whether they're just not working on the SB1 firmware any longer.

    Instead of being forced to buy an SB3, you could also get a second wireless router and run WEP on it and connect it to your home network. The SB1 only does 802.11b, so you could probably pick up a used 11b router for $10-20.

    Alternatively, you could get a WPA-capable WLAN-to-Ethernet adapter and
    use the SB1's ethernet port.
