Maybe I should give a few more details.

We're implementing a new system for installation in our hospital operating
theatres. Beacuse of the environment, drilling holes and running cables
isn't an option so we've installed a Cisco Aironet wireless system. The
network manager is a bit paranoid so he's insisted that the most secure form
of encryption is used on the wireless links. This encrypts in a similar
manner to PGP using public and private keys (I think). A number of thin
client terminals can handle this encrypted wireless system perfectly well,
as long as the key never changes. Unfortunately, the network manager has
installed a system that changes the encryption keys every few minutes for
added security. This is the Dynamic WEP key bit of the equation.

So, terminals that handle static WEP keys are easy to find but I really need
some that can handle the Dynamic WEP keys as well, and that's the sticking
point so far. If it comes down to it, I could probably convince him to use a
static key for that area but I'll need evidence that we can't do it any
other way first.

So, any takers?

Oh and sorry for the double post Dave.

Shall I take it that (a) nobody knows of such a WBT or (b) nobody knows what
I'm talking about ;-) Would NTe based terminals be OK?
