The phone also indicates no security, but the hotspot pamplets at the condiment stand indicate that the hotspot supports WPA.
Also, is there a way to determine if a hotspot is setup for WMM? I know some of the wardriving apps can indicate feature support, but I don't know of any that indicate WMM.
Some of the older SBUX stores have the old Cisco 350 AP and are b only. Any new installations will be using b/g APs. PM me with the SBUX store number or full address and I'll check the hardware for you.
