QR code with router - what a great idea!

My 582n router came in the post today. I haven't had chance to try it out, but one thing I noticed immediately was the little card containing the router's wi-fi SSID and key, and a mysterious QR code.  Cool Naturally, I couldn't resist scanning it and was pleased to see that it gave the wi-fi details to my phone.
I know a lot of people who never change the wi-fi SSID and WPA key from the default, so this is a great idea.

If you do change the settings (lots will) then the router can generate another QR code for you in the Wireless Options.
