D-Link DWL-AG650, AirPort Extreme, and WEP

Well, argh!  Seems impossible to exercise due diligence in making sure
stuff will work together before you buy.  It's not enough to satisfy
standard XYZ, there are always variants to the standards that will get
you.  Oh, well.  But thanks for the explanation.

Me too.  So long as the code is compatible with 5.2-RELEASE, anyway.
I don't really have the time to follow -CURRENT these days.  Sam, if
you want me to try your code, feel free to mail me a sample.  </AOL>

In the mean time, I'll just run WEPless.  Not likely that I'll have a
lot of unauthorized accesses to my net where I live anyway, and
besides my more sensitive traffic moves over ssh anyway.
