    Do you use it? Like it? Any downsides? Looks better than WEP to me. Are longer keys more secure?

    My understanding is that WEP is not all that hard to crack... WPA is better; It's not uncrackable, but it takes a lot more know-how.

    I would recommend using WPA if you've got that option. I'd also lock down and secure as much as possible. Don't leave your doors wide open, in other words.
