NOTE: please CC me as I am not subscribed to the list.
I have set up a FreeBSD -CURRENT box as a WAP sucessfully. I am now in the process of setting up WEP.
I have successfully turned on WEP on the WAP with:
ifconfig_wi0="ssid doubt_it wepmode on wepkey 0x032ED30A31CD97041DCE535047 channel 11 media DS/11Mbps mediaopt hostap up stationname 'FreeBSD_AP'"
This seems to work fine.
However, the problem is trying to get my MacOSX powerbook to log into the network with a WEP password i.e. The password keeps getting rejected.
I'm acutally typing in the hex number prefixed with a $. As recommended by:
Has anyone had any experience on connecting MacOSX to a FreeBSD WAP with WEP enabled ?
If so could you please shine some on light on how to get my WEP password accepted on the MacOSX side.
p.s Yes I know WEP is crackable. It is my 1st layer of security.
