Primarily because to be secure, the PSK needs to be random, and an
easy-to-remember password would also make it vulnerable to a dictionary


and because I'm lazy and /dev/urandom is easier to use for a random key
rather than a random "passphrase" :-)

BTW, does the 770 support EAP-PEAP and/or EAP-TLS?

Make history or be it.
