10 May 2000 splork   » (Master)

I got back from the UK on Saturday. That was a great vacation; it was my first time to another country outside of North America. I've dropped off my various rolls of film to at Safeway to be developed and put on a kodak Picture CD so I can webify them.

The first thing I did when I got back was see these instructions on using an Apple Airport without the need for a mac. I went down to Fry's and bought one as well as borrowing a Lucent WaveLAN Silver card from work. Wow. I'm impressed. That was extreemly easy to setup. The airport is acting like a bridge between my ethernet and the airwaves for me.

I ended up using the java airport configurator to change the settings on my airport rather than the mentioned windows based tool.

Now, does anyone out there have any good ideas on howto setup a wavelan card to automatically figure out which encryption keys to use when it gets plugged in? (as in, pick the correct keys from a list; I'd like to use a different key at home than I do at work).

Also, anyone know if Gold cards can speak lowly Silver-style crypto if simply given a small key? (ie: Gold cards hardly cost anymore from techstore.com so I'd rather not buy a Silver card even if thats all I need)
