Planet PCMCIA WiFi card can't change WEP key set


I am using iwconfig to do the configuration and at the same time I have set some settings in script/start_net. But after tries also can't get logon to the AP.

After a check with "iwlist wlan0 encryption" noticed that the key it uses is wrong. My AP uses key number 3 but no matter how I tried to change the settings, it only uses the first key (WEP key-set #1).

Please, anybody knows how to fix this? BTW what is this error "SIOCADDRT: File exists" means? Should I do something to solve this as well? It appears during the time I start the wlan0 interface.

Here's the message that I got when starting up the wlan0:

[root@localhost scripts]# ./start_net
wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
wlan0 deconfigured, module unloaded.
Module successfully inserted.
Setting rate to 11M.
Setting channel 1.
Trying to join or setup ESSID LSMNET.
Setting mode to Managed.
Setting key to 11113333ad, algorithm restricted.
Interface has been set up successfully.
SIOCADDRT: File exists
[root@localhost scripts]#


here's message from iwconfig:

here's message from iwlist:

SIOCADDRT: File exists

"SIOCADDRT: File exists" means that your script tries to configure the gateway while it is already configured (by another net interface).

I suppose that you can just comment the "GATEWAY=" line in your start_net script.
