If this is not a typo in the UG it makes one wonder if they are concerned about security and what other corners they cut.

Can someone who has one of these check if the 8 - 13 is a typo or not?

My Samsung Galaxy S2 phone uses wpa/wpa2 and it has only 8 characters.

My wep on my router required 26 and was a horror and is not as secure.
