When I was running a wireless LAN in Sunnyvale, I ran WPA256.  I had no
problem remembering my passphrase.

Unfortunately, I was using an ancient hand-me-down Thinkpad 600E with
insufficient memory at the time, on which I had no choice but to run
Win2K, and an 11g card with WPA256 brought it to its knees.
