I have had success using linux-wlan-ng in various encrypted 
environments.  Things to watch out for:

1.  Apple Airports use a different string->hex convertion
    for WEP keys.  You need to set the explicit HEX digits
    as given in the airport control panel.

2.  There are problem with ifupdown-roaming and wlan-ng.
    If you simply don't do mapping on wlan0 this problem
    doesn't appear.  (i think ifupdown-roaming assumes iwconfig).
