I don't see why the responsibility should land on ISPs, they already
have enough support calls day to day but what if they ship a WPA
router, and that person uses some old wireless hardware that doesn't
support it. It then becomes the ISPs job to help them update or ship
out the wep model router. I agree for the sake of security that wep
shouldn't be used but I still believe it is up to the user to have
someone set it up for them or do it themselves.

my 2 cents as well
