I have used a WPA key, as generated by, as a password. A
bit tough to remember though. ;-)

So you let someone else generate a password for you?

And GRC of all possible someone elses?


Well, it's supposed to be a fresh random key each time. Of course,
having the key doesn't get you much, if you don't know where it's used.
I've also generated WEP keys by using the "ps aux|md5sum" command.
