I'm confused. Quoting from Wikipedia,
"In cryptography, TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) is a

security consultant Steve Gibson has also strongly implied if not
actually stated the same thing in his "Security Now" podcast.
Regardless of whether it is "part of" or "substitute for" WPA, I
thought TKIP was a sufficiently strong protocol to prevent
eavesdropping in most everyday situations. Please correct me if I'm
wrong in that assumption.
My AmbiCom card supports what is billed at "WPA/TKIP" with a 64 digit
key, so it is not limited to Symbol's products. It works well with
Cacko and pdaXrom. To bad I can't get it to work consistently with
