IMHO it does not really matter. If someone is going to break your WEP key
they can do it with a 256 bit key too. All they need is a fast computer
and some time.

I really think that everyone should use WEP and it's real reason is to
make the guy driving down the street looking for a place to download
porn, or send out spam, just keeps on going to the next site.
