The "help" for Wireless=>Wireless Security says
Security Mode


Security Mode:
    You may choose from Disable, WEP, WPA Pre-Shared Key, WPA RADIUS, or 
RADIUS. All devices on your network must use the same security mode. 

This seems perfectly clear to me.
It is the NetworkManager choice of "open" or "shared" that I find confusing.

As far as I can see, "open" means "no key" and "shared" means "key".
Is that your understanding?
