The entry in the example file shows both hex and ascii keys. No
excryption of keys is supported by standard WEP so if your AP is doing
something like that you need to get the hex key it's using from it.
Have you been able to connect by hand (not using wpa_supplicant)? If
not, do that first.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
