Update: Atheros card seems to work with broadcasted SSIDs. Not if
broadcast of SSID is disabled.

Emne: [m0n0wall] 1.2b6 WEP problem

I'm using soekris net4521-hardware and trying a Proxim 802.11b/g card
(Atheros 5212) on the WAN-interface (BSS-mode).

I get associated to an accesspoint only if I do not use WEP-encryption,
with WEP-encryption and Proxim b/g card i do not get associated to the
accesspoint. Same configuration works with an Avaya 802.11b-card.

Status.php shows:

>ath0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

Any ideas? Has anyone tried a Atheros based card in BSS-mode with
WEP-encryption?
