Ars Technica does another great article of Wifi hacking.

Tools like BackTrack5 make cracking WPS routers a snap in Under 12 hours. So for all those WPA/WPA2 folks with MAC filter, check your router if has Wireless Protected Setup. You're no longer safe. Personal research has confirmed this.

I call BS, on that. I'm talking about wps not wep hacking. It's an average of 2-4 hours. Show me vid of popping open an 8 character space password using WPA-2 with WPS in 15 mins over a distance of 25 feet and I'll believe you.
