I thought I sent this, but I don't see it in my out box, nor have I seen
it come back in. Apologies if this is a resend.
This improved matters a great deal for me, but I'm still unable to
associate with a wep protected network (128-bit key), though it works
like a charm for unprotected nets. I used the same ifconfig parameters
on the iwi NIC that work for a Cisco 350 cardbus card on the protected
network, but it fails to associate. The debug output enabled by the
sysctls indicates that the iwi hears a lot of stations announce
themselves, but none get associated. As I say, the Cisco card on the
same machine associates properly (the cisco's an 11b, but the iwi fails
on 11b or 11g. I associated successfully with an unlocked network in
11b mode with the iwi, so I think that's working).
The params are: wepmode on wepkey "13-char-string" weptxkey 1. That's
after a separate ifconfig setting the mode above.
Any words of wisdom? Should I specify the key differently to the iwi
(though ifconfig reports the value I expect)? Can I give you more info?
