Special characters in WEP key problem
Last modified: 2008-03-28 12:18:04 EDT
Description of problem:
When I'm using special characters in the WEP key like ':' or '!', the
NetworkManager is not able to connect to my access point. Disabling
NetworkManager and using iwconfig works. It does not work regardless if I'm
entering the key in ASCII or hex format.
I'm using the ipw2200 driver. The NetworkManager finds all abailable WLANs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Starting nm-applet
2. Entering key
3. NM fails to connect
Which key type are you using, WEP ASCII (5 or 13 ASCII characters), WEP Hex key
(10 or 26 hexedecimal characters), or a WEP passphrase (8 to 64 characters)?
