Zoolook hit on some good points! I wanted to add that WEP is good enough as a deterrent. Most people can't just go out can crack WEP. It is easy, but the average joe doesn't have a clue. WEP isn't the current “technological trend” anymore, which makes it weak, however there are lots of Wireless devices that only support WEP at this time. For example, I just purchased a HP Wireless color photo printer - it does not support WPA or WPA2, so using WEP allows me to still use my wireless printer.

If you're dealing with content that you concerned about some level of compartmentation then use WP2 as a precaution. I store my files off on a external drive that I can physically turn off when needed.
