WinXP is his client, not the machine with the MA311 card in it.

the issue appears to be in the WEP module for the MA311 running in hostAP
mode. I'm seeing the same issue on my FreeBSD hostap machine that is also
running WEP/128 -- I don't have windows running anywhere other than the
laptops, so I've not the option of upgrading the firmware (I'm installing
linux on a laptop with the aim of building a boot-floppy with the right
filesystem drivers and hostap installation to allow it to be used to burn
vew versions of firmware. will probbaly happen sometime in may)
