WEP Shared or Open Key????

Which is more secure when using WEP, Open or Shared Key? I don't want to get into the whole WPA and WPA-PSK is better, I know they are but I am asking about WEP.

Thanks Jim

Open authentication is considered more secure because in shared key the ap sends open text to the client. The client encrypts it with the key and sends it back. So a hacker could take the initial text and the encrypted text and determine your key then use it yo unencrypt your data.
