Wireless won't work with WEP
I'm trying to set up my unstable Debian laptop for Wireless networking. I have ndiswrapper set up and working. I can use wireless as long as I turn off the encryption. The problem is, when I set the WEP on the router, I can't get Linux to do anything with it.
I use iwconfig wlan0 key MYKEY to set the key. Running iwconfig reports that the key is being used. But when I run ifup wlan0, it keeps trying to do DHCP, but to no avail.
Another thing I don't understand is that when I set the WEP on the router, iwconfig no longer lets me change the essid. It goes to "off/any", and stays like that.
I am using kernel 2.6.10. Any help would be appreciated.
