I only seem to have problems when trying to connect to access points or 
devices with authmode set to shared, but when I set everything to OPEN, 
but still use a WEP key, I can make it work (as a client, not as an 
access point).  I would agree something is seriously borked and really 
wish the authmode stuff would work.  I'm willing to help in any way I 
can, but I'm not much of a C programmer or driver hacker to begin work 
on it myself..
