Roland, this isn't the home wi-fi market we're talking about.  Anyone
that's going to buy one of these puppies is going to have a clue about
putting their password in. 

You apparently missed the recent thread on NANOG where this guy was asking
for some help with "Default Passwords for World Wide Packets/Lightning Edge
Equipment" ...  apparently not everyone has the "clue" you expect them to.

To be fair, he was just asking about factory resetting the device because
the current password was unknown, then reconfiguring the device (I'm willing
to be generous and assume that the reconfiguration included setting a new,
secure password).
