wi and WPA-PSK

I flashed a Netgear MA401 Wireless NIC so that I cold use it
via my WPA-PSK wireless router on a Windows box. It has been
working there nicely for a few months now.

I want to use it on my NetBSD box also. From dmesg:
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0: <NETGEAR MA401RA Wireless PC, Card, ISL37300P, Eval-R
wi0: 802.11 address 00:09:5b:23:3c:0e
wi0: using RF:PRISM2.5 MAC:ISL3873B(PCMCIA)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary (1.1.1), Station (1.7.4)
wi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps

That looks good to me.

from ifconfig:
        ssid utopia nwkey *****
        powersave off
        bssid 00:1e:e5:6f:ad:4d chan 1
        address: 00:09:5b:23:3c:0e
        media: IEEE802.11 autoselect (DS2)
        status: active
        inet netmask 0xff000000 broadcast
        inet6 fe80::209:5bff:fe23:3c0e%wi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3

Doesn't "nwkey" mean its trying to use WEP?

It looks like WPA is not supported by the NetBSD wi driver.

Am I correct? If I am correct, is there any chance WPA will be implemented
for wi in NetBSD 5.0?
