Looks like you saw the AP previously unencrypted. It's not guessing a
factory IP range and there isn't any IP traffic for the linksys TKIP AP,
so it's using the old cached IP.

Newcore doesn't cache IP ranges; I suggest using that in general anyhow.

"Hostility towards Microsoft is not difficult to find on the Net, and it
blends two strains: resentful people who feel Microsoft is too powerful,
and disdainful people who think it's tacky. This is all strongly reminiscent
of the heyday of Communism and Socialism, when the bourgeoisie were hated
from both ends: by the proles, because they had all the money, and by the
intelligentsia, because of their tendency to spend it on lawn ornaments."
