Cannot get WEP to work on WPC11 Ver. 3
WIreless connectivity is OK. WEP is not and has never worked. Do not have any way to run DOZE to check out the AP since I have purged my laptop of all signs of it. Running RH 7.3.
Here is the ifcfg-wlan0 filewithout WEP:
BOOTPROTO=dhcp # change this to static to specify an IP addr
GATEWAYDEV=wlan0 # this is for setting default route
PEERDNS=yes # this lets DHCP define the DNS setup
Is there anything extra here? Is this a good config file? Is there a better way to set up this file? It works OK without WEP. The file is the same with WEP except for a line that reads:
KEY=FF:FF:FF:FF:FF (real values are something else)
Have also tried
KEY=FFFFFFFFFF as well as the corresponding 128 bit versions.
All I get when issuing the command ifup wlan0 is
Determining IP information for wlan0... failed.
Questions - is there something in a log file somewhere that might help? What do I do next?
All help is greatly appreciated. I'm really committed to getting rid of MS completely. The WEP is one of the last steps.
