I'm quite sure a Open-Key WEP connection is different from a Open Network (unprotected), since a Open WEP, despite not requesting authentication (as opposed to Shared-Key WEP), still holds a hexadecimal WEP key, which is required for data encryption after connection. If your network is truly Open WEP, then in my experience, wpa_supplicant needs that key in order to successfully attach to the network. So , in addition to what Scole Mail said, if you happened to find out you need a WEP key for real, you could make use of a similar configuration in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:
wep_key0=$hex_key #(10 characters)
For Shared-Key WEP, simply add :
And then try connecting:
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
You can also avoid using wpa_supplicant at all:
ifconfig $interface ssid xxxxxx nwkey $wep_key

Thank you. An open WEP network is a network that does not require
password or key.

What do you mean by an "open WEP" network? Seems like any WEP network
should have a key, but you're not configuring the interface with any
