Hello folks. I've just purchased a Linksys wireless lan card
which works great with the wi(4) driver and wiconfig(8) under NetBSD-1.5Z,
as long as I don't try to use WEP. I'm using it with a Farallon 8581
gateway, which claims to do 64-bit and 128-bit encryption. If I try to
talk with the Farallon using either the 40-bit key or the 104-bit key, they
appear to not communicate, as if their keys aren't matching. Does the WEP
support work on non-Lucent cards?
Are there any tricks for debugging this problem any further?
