Description Trond Husoe 2005-10-23 19:30:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When trying to connect to home network, which has a disabled Broadcast SSID it does not accept the WEP key (HEX) for this ssid.
When inserting the key, it keeps coming back for another try.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NetworkManager-0.5.1-1.FC4.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up NetworkManager
2. Choose network
3. Get the WEP-key window
  

Actual Results:  I am getting the window where I am putting the WEP-key back up again. 

Expected Results:  I should have connected to the not broadcasted network.

By updating bind and wireless-tools, it worked.
