Aaron,

agreed regarding the use of something (i.e. WPA or WPA2)  better than WEP.

With respect to WPA and WPA2,  I just wanted to clarify that the 
difference in the "goodness" of 802.1x mode versus pre-shared key mode 
has to do with the much higher scalability  of the former over the 
latter and not  with differences in  the security of the channel once 
the security association between the client and the AP is established 
subsequent to the authentication process.
