Laurent, et. al.,

I discovered that I can successfully change the SSID/WEP Keys to differing
values if I make the change through the Worksite's "802.11b WaveLAN setup".

It's only when I tap on the "Setup" button in the card insertion slip that
I am unable to change them appropriately.

I still haven't tested WEP since I'm at work now, but I'll give it a shot
when I get home and post back to the list.
