I've recently installed the orinoco gold card and it's working

what can be 'tweaked'.
I am also using an orinoco gold card and orinoco WAP, but I cannot get
WEP working. Have you?
Yes I have!
/etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts has to include the line similar to this:
Where abcdefghijklm is the String expression of the Key, not HEX.
I entered the same into the WAP and voila! It's working fine.
It took me a while to figure this out. I used 'makepasswd' to
create a 13 character string for a password. It can be
alphanumeric and caps are optional.
That was all I did for WEP.
run iwconfig as root/sudo and it will show you if the Encryption
Key is being used.
Beggars should be no choosers.
