WPC54G WEP not working

I have my WPC54G working under OpenSuse 10.1 using ndiswrapper. However, WEP does not seem to work. As soon as I enable WEP on the router (which I have by default), the WPC54G connects but can not retrieve an IP via DHCP. Using a static IP, it doesn't work either.

As soon as I disable WEP, everything works great. I tried it with 64bit and 128bit keys. In fact, no matter what I try, "iwlist wlan0 key" shows no keys configured. It's as if iwconfig is ignoring any attempts to set a key.

re: WPC54G WEP not working

have you tried placing 0x in front of the key?

e.g. 0xXXXXXXXXXX (where XXXXXXXXXX is your hex key)


ndiswrapper, wep, wpc54g
