I'll try that to see if it is effective in my case.

Okay, granted. I'll try to disable WEP and test again. If I am not 
mistaken, WEP magic is performed within hardware, that's not something 
written in the drivers. Is that correct?

That lead me to the following question: how can one chose between 64 and 
128 bit modes? Just by extending the key given in nwkey?

It would be worth seeing if a newest one is out or if reverting to a 
previous one solves that mess…
