Default Wireless settings

One of my bigger frustrations with my zune is that for wireless you can only access WEP wireless points. So if I'm at my school and I have to enter both a username and a password, I'm out of luck. On an older zune that's not such a huge deal since all you can do with wireless is buy music. However, with the zune hd you'll be able to get online obviously - so being able to get onto more sophisticated wireless encryptions would be great.

So, you kinda glossed over wireless setup in your movie - could you maybe either post a vid or explain in greater detail what options you have for wireless? Thanks.

The Zune HD supports...

Encryption modes: WEP 64- and 128-bit, TKIP, and AES
Authentication modes: Open, WEP, WPA, and WPA2
802.11b and 802.11g

And because you have a browser now, you can authenticate on user/password-based networks.
