Re: Well...

If it's alphanumeric, then it may be limited to hexadecimal character (0-9, A-F). I use a hexidecimal key, but it's also 64 characters long: reaching the key's size limit of 256 bits (it's not worth making a password that digests to something larger than the actual key). I also prudently only allow WPS by push-buton (which requires physical presence to engage).
