Description of problem:
Activating Wireless LAN card (linksys instant wireless lan card v3)
produces the following message and fails to set wep code

Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Activate Card with wep enabled

Additional info:

work around can be used by iwconfig eth1 enc (wepcodehere)

however this has to be done after every boot.
Comment 1 matthew pease 2004-07-06 19:52:05 EDT
Also cant get ip because of webcode not being set
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-07-07 04:25:31 EDT
the initscripts do:
# iwconfig eth1 key <wep>
is that different from
# iwconfig eth1 enc <wep>
??? I do not think so...
Comment 3 matthew pease 2004-07-07 11:08:32 EDT

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
