Linux/Debian, WEP and linux-wlan - cannot get it to work with WEP

I have a Netgear WGR614 wireless router.

On my laptop running debian (libanet v2.8.1), I have the linux-wlan drivers compiled with a Dlink - DWL 122 wireless usb adaptor.

In my /etc/wlan I have a file called wlancfg-startrek, which is the name of my AP in my WGR614 router.

All works ok, as long as I dont set WEP.
If I set WEP - 64 bit (the DWL-122 client on my laptop uses 40 or 64bit), I get a key like 213ab0794d but no matter how I set out the wlancfg-startrek file,I cannot get WEP to work.

Everytime I do a iwconfig, encryption=off

Has anyone a working example of the same type of file but with 64bit WEP as its driving me nuts.

Many Thanks

I have a d-link access point and a dwl-122 on my debian laptop. WEP is enabled in the access point and my wlancfg file, but I always get encryption=off with iwconfig.
At work, there is a Cisco access point with 128bit WEP and also get encryption=off althought it works.

I believe what iwconfig reports is inaccurate, but if WEP wasn't enabled, I would not get a connection.
