    Sorry, i'm not a networking person, so this may be a dumb question.

    Just curios if someone can answer this for me as i'm a windows user.
    @ work network, under windows after entering the wep key i must also specify the index as well. Is this something that is windows only or is this a setting on other OS's? What about the iPhone, does it just know which index to use or is this option missing from the wi-fi settings?

    Ok, after doing some research, it appears that os x only uses index 1 (i assume the iPhone version also). Does any one know how to get the wi-fi on the iPhone to connect using index 2. I see nowhere in the settings anywhere to change this, so unless i can enter something on the wep key entry field, i might be out of luck.

    I am trying to connect to work wi-fi and the keys are on rotation. If there's no work-around, it appears i might only get wi-fi at work once every couple of months. Man that sucks.
