Question WEP configuration - Fedora wireless


Hello all,

I'm having a hard time configuring my Fedora C2 laptop to get WiFi connction with my router once WEP enabled. Without WEP it worked fine.

Here's my ifcfg-eth1 file :
Code:
# IPV6INIT=no
ONBOOT=no
USERCTL=yes
# PEERDNS=yes
# GATEWAY=
TYPE=Wireless
DEVICE=eth1
HWADDR=[eth1_MAC_address]
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
# NETMASK=
# DHCP_HOSTNAME=
# IPADDR=
# DOMAIN=
ESSID=
CHANNEL=11
MODE=Managed
RATE=11Mb/s
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
DHCP_HOSTNAME=
IPADDR=
DOMAIN=
GATEWAY=
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no
iwconfig gives the following :
Code:
lo        no wireless extensions.
 sit0      no wireless extensions.
 eth0      no wireless extensions.
 Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 17
of Wireless Extension, while this program is using version 16.
Some things may be broken...
 eth1      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"wl_network_name"  Nickname:"my_PC_name"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462GHz  Access Point: 00:12:17:41:64:DF
          Bit Rate=11Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:1/3
          Retry min limit:8   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:[hex 128-bit key]  Security mode:open
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:92/92  Signal level:5/153  Noise level:116/153
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:75170  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
and keys-eth1 contains :
Code:
KEY="s:passphrase_as_on_router"
The hex key given by iwconfig matches the 4th key computed on the router. However my laptop can't connect...

Any help would be appreciated...

I'm assuming you're using a router, in which case you need to make sure that the 4th key is the one that it is using. I know when setting up the wireless system here at our house, we had to keep all of the computers on the one key we had selected.
