System: NetBSD guitar.araneus.fi 2.99.15 NetBSD 2.99.15 (GUITAR_KGDB_NOOPT) #0: Thu Feb 10 13:31:47 EET 2005 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GUITAR_KGDB_NOOPT i386
The atu(4) driver is unable to communicate with an 802.11b base
station configured to use WEP encryption.
Connect a USB 802.11b adapter supported by the atu(4) driver.
I used a TRENDnet TEW-229UB. Confirm that it works without WEP.
Configure the base station with a WEP key, say,
0xaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, and configure the
same key on the atu device:
ifconfig atu0 nwkey 0xaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Notice that the connection no longer works.
Unknown. It looks like the code to support WEP in if_atu.c is
incomplete; for example, there is a function atu_set_wepkey() but
it is never called.
