I thought making the setup wifi passphrase be the the serial number 
printed on the module was an excellent factory default. I've seen dsl 
modems that do this. When I see unique default passwords in products it 
gives a little confidence they were designed with security in mind.

What would be really slick is if the smartphone apps could have a "setup 
new module" mode. I've never used it but I think ruckus wireless has 
this. The app looks for ssid's with the right name then prompts the user 
to enter the serial number, scan again to pick a wifi network, enter the 
details, etc.
