How to get on a 40 bit WEP encrypted wireless network with an Intersil Prism2 card?
I have an airport network encrypted with WEP 40-bit encryption. My two Windows-using roommates can get on it with no trouble. My boyfriend, however, is running Linux Mandrake with an Orinoco CS wireless card, and we can't seem to figure out how to give his machine enough information to get on the Internet. Using the config tool, we put our network name in as the ESSID, and the hex password in as the encryption ID, and though his computer can find the network then, no Internet. He seems to have no problem on public, unencrypted wireless. Any thoughts?
