And when a friend comes over (you do have friends don't you?) and wants to connect his laptop to your wi-fi network, what do you do, e-mail him the password so he can cut and paste it? Oh wait, he's not connected so he can't get the e-mail. I guess you'll have to e-mail it to him in advance. But wait, that would be clear text! Or you could get out the USB drive, plug it into your computer, open a text file, copy the password to that, unplug it, plug it into his laptop, wait for the driver to get installed, open it up, copy and paste it from the text file. Just so he can check his Facebook page? Gee, this is fun!
