I had the same experience. After I entered my AirPort network name and
re-opened the setup, I noticed that the Wep key had the same value as the
SSID. Don't know if it's a bug, though. Does anybody with Wep enabled
noticed this, or are you able to specify different values for the Wep key
and the SSID?
