  what do you mean?

  i'm confused now...  sorry. the key is generated by the point - wireless
router. and i get an hex string back..  no matter what i put in as
password (or how many ascii characters) i always get the 128 bit hex. so
when i try it with ifconfig i always get the same error - even without the
index and the 0x...

ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
