What is the difference between WPA2 Personal and WPA2?

I have a WRT54G.  It's using WPA2.  I don't remember anything about Personal 
but it's been a while since I looked at the manual.

For me, recent good XO builds (800/801/34) all work but sometimes don't 

Much older versions used to automagically connect to my AP on reboot.  Now I 
have to wait a while for things to time out.  Then if I poke my AP (from the 
neighborhood view), it usually works.  Sometimes it takes a second poke.

You can watch things by turning on the frame (frame key, upper right) and 
moving the cursor over the network icon.  It's 3rd from the right (lower 
right corner) on my XO.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
