I'm using Knoppix 3.8 on a Compaq Armada E500.
I have a Netgear MA401 Wireless B PCMCIA card with a Prism I chipset.
My access point is a Linksys WAP54G
It connects flawlessly to open networks, and I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to go online with Knoppix live.
However, it's a whole other story when attempting to connect to WEP enabled networks.
I've used KWiFiManager's GUI to turn on encryption but when I do "iwconfig" it shows "Encryption key:off"
The KWiFiManager Interface GUI also indicates that encryption is off.
active crypto key=1
Key 1 is string=true
Key 2 is string=false
Key 3 is string=false
Key 4 is string=false
What am I missing?
try this in command line:
replace xxxxxxxxx with the actual wep key in hexadecimal format.
iwconfig interface_name key xxxxxxxxxxx
Thank you kindly. Works perfectly now.
