I've just committed the changes to add nwkey keyword to ifconfig(8).
The available drivers are wi (WaveLAN and PRISM-II), and awi (AMD/PRISM-I),
for now. (ray driver looks no support to wep).
Here is the usage from man page:
nwkey key (IEEE 802.11 devices only) Enable WEP encryption for IEEE
802.11-based wireless network interfaces with the key.
The key can either be a string, a series of hexadecimal
digits, or a set of keys in the form n:k1,k2,k3,k4, where
n specifies which of keys will be used for all transmit-
ted packets, and four keys, k1 through k4, are configured
as WEP keys. Note that the order must be match within
same network if multiple keys are used.
-nwkey (IEEE 802.11 devices only) Disable WEP encryption for
IEEE 802.11-based wireless network interfaces.
