Speedcheck: 04/29/06 Saturday at 8:43 pm EST: Above Stats are via Airport Express ~ I RTFM'd it and reset to Factory Settings and reconfigured Base Station and Network.

Question(s): 1) Is there a correlation between being Hardwired in Versus Wireless? or is this just 'chance'?

2) WEP versus WPA2 Personal versus  WPA Enterprise: Security, Encryption etc. What's the difference? (I'll do some research regarding these but I figured here is a good opportunity to get SCHOOLED! - I post here FIRST!

Question(s): 1) Is there a correlation between being Hardwired in Versus Wireless? or is this just 'chance'?

It depends on how they have the network set up... It could be that their ethernet, hardware, and wireless are separate physical networks.. This way security is maximized..  Speed wise I would have expected the ethernet to be faster.. but due to other stores, consoles, and other network traffic.. Again it is really hard to know with out knowing anything about the network

2) WEP versus WPA2 Personal versus  WPA Enterprise: Security, Encryption etc. What's the difference? (I'll do some research regarding these but I figured here is a good opportunity to get SCHOOLED! - I post here FIRST!

WEP.. pretty much the first security protocol for 802.11.. based on the RC4 encryption and a CRC-32 check sum.. basically what happens is since WEP is based on a stream cypher.. the same key can never be used twice.. since the IV packet is transmitted in plain text all you have to do is capture the packets and assemble the key.

WPA2 Personal... Basically it is a improvement on WPA as far as security goes.. It allows the user to have government grade encryption on their network.(FIPS 140-2 AES)  WPA2 personal uses a setup password similar to WEP/WPA, I believe, to secure the network.

WPA2 Enterprise..  This is for larger implementations and where security is extremely important.  It uses a server instead of a password to secure the network.

here is some more info on WPA2 and how you can implement it.. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/columns/cableguy/cg0505.mspx
