  hi all...

  according to the man page of ifconfig in 6.0 the wepkey should be 5 or
13 characters. the wep key i always had is way longer than 13 characters
128 bit - one key only..  so when i try to set it up to the wi0 i get:

# ifconfig wi0 wepkey 1:0xWEPKEY128BITENCRYPTIONBLAHBLA
ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument

this worked fine in 5.4..

any solution?
