Question the WEP key rotates every 1024 cycles so I wonder what you mean by a 2 Gb?

layers of defense.
however, you cannot rely soley uopn WEP. for a site with a lot of data
flow, WEP is almost useless. for a home user, with only occasional
wireless use, WEP will prove quite effective (it takes awhile to sniff
the 2GB required to bust the WEP key)
WEP + changing the key often = very effective layer of defense.
buttressed with MAC and end-to-end encryption (ssl, ssh, and vpn) it is
very formidible indeed.
