WEP encryption key doesn't work
Last modified: 2016-01-05 11:28:18 EST
Description of problem:
I'm trying to take advantage of the WEP bits in anaconda, but I can't
seem to get it to work.
I have installed FC3t1 on this laptop and managed to get WEP working
with the orinoco-driven PCMCIA wifi card. However, during install
(and if I try a new install) I can't persuade anaconda to use my key.
I choose NFS installation, and type in the ESSID and the encryption
key (10 hex digits, just as I put in the 'KEY=' line of ifcfg-eth0),
but it fails to get an IP address when using DHCP immediately after that.
I can see from the AP log that it hasn't been allowed in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot install image.
2. Choose NFS installation.
3. Tell it the wireless parameters.
Fails when trying to bring up network.
Committed something which should help a bit. Should be in rawhide

Nearly there, but it needs this patch too otherwise is_wireless_interface()
fails further on.
I've checked in that change.
