Back when I was using Breezy, I found that I could not get the WEP key
to work unless I set it to Hex input, and made sure all of the alpha
values were in upper case. I don't know why it didn't allow lower case,
but it wouldn't work for me.
I read somewhere that using the string entry in Breezy would only
generate 64-bit keys, so if you're using 128-bit keys, the string
doesn't work. This is purely memory, though, so I may be quoting an
I also had problems using the network-configure dialog at first, but
