>From the wireless side there is no difference. There's personal which
is where you configure the pass phrase on the WAP and there's
"Enterprise" or what ever they call it which you configure a central
authentication mechanism such as RADIUS or something similar so that
you can authenticate individual users or have the same phrase across
multiple WAPs in an enterprise.
