Using today's current (if_ural.c 1.2), I tried this evening on an 11g
network with WEP.

I got an assosciation ~immediately, including negotiation of WEP
capability, looking at DLT_IEEE802_11 traffic; the interface reported
connected state and media (auto) went straight to OFDM54.  However,
normal data traffic received seems not to be getting decrypted, and
thus I had no connectivity.

Seems like the driver may need a similar tweak to that made for some
of the others with the recent framework changes; appropriately
flagging the driver for software or hardware WEP decapsulation?

FWIW, this is with an ASUS WL-167g:
  ral0 at uhub0 port 1
  ral0: ASUS 802.11g WLAN Drive, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 2
  ral0: MAC/BBP RT2570 (rev 0x03), RF RT2526, address 00:11:d8:24:5c:a9
