I use a Lucent Silver card with a new Cisco 340(?) with 40bit WEP
and it appears to be working ok.  I have the upgraded firmware on my
Lucent, perhaps that makes a difference.  Well, actually I think you
have to have the upgraded firmware to even use them together without

Perhaps I need to sniff it to verify that it is not falling back to
no WEP somehow. :-)
