Hmmmnn.  I thought that WPA wasn't working at all in feisty.  Maybe it
depends on the card.  I can get WEP working, but not WPA, with my
bcm43xx.  Wireless didn't work at all for me in edgy, and WPA worked
fine in dapper.

Given how important wireless now is, wireless support does seem to be
rather dodgy.
