 Subject:  WEP issue with Apple client
 Date:  Mon, 07 Mar 2005 12:30:19 -0500
Hello,
Had been running pb27r630 on net4801 for quite a while, no problems. Have used
a DLink DWL-520 for WiFi and connected with various clients including Win XP PCs
with Prism chipset and Apple iBook/Powerbook with Airport cards.
Recently upgraded to 1.2b6. Hand entered a matching configuration. XP PCs continued
to connect using WEP with no change required on PC side of things. (same WEP key).
However Apple machines can no longer connect if WEP is used. (The error reported at
OS X GUI is the same one received if WEP key is mismatched). Was unable to get a WEP
connection up using various methods to enter key (0x prefix, $ prefix etc). Tried both
hex and ascii forms of keys.
From what I can tell, something is broken in WEP from m0n0 to Apple WiFi (802.11b) clients,
not sure if the net4801 platform matters.
Has anyone else used recent m0n0wall WiFi with Apple client?
