WEP Key bug?

    I'm seeing a problem where I can associate with
    a Cisco AP, but not pass any traffic.
    It seems to be a WEP problem, as the Stats on
    the card show increasing counts in WEP-decrypt-errors.

    We have double and tripled checked the WEP keys,
    and they are the same on the AP and the client,
    and in fact, it connects and passing traffic
    with another AP using the same WEP key.

    Any ideas?  This happen to anyone else?

      I'm having this same problem with a cisco 350 pcmcia card. It's got the 4.25.30 firmware, with the latest drivers from CVS. using pcmcia-cs-3.2.4 with wireless extensions v15

      eth1      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"MySSID" 
                Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.442GHz  Access Point: 00:40:96:32:F0:98 
                Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm   Sensitivity=0/65535 
                Retry limit:16   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
                Encryption key:****-****-****-****-****-****-**   Security mode:open
                Power Management:off
                Link Quality:16/10  Signal level:-41 dBm  Noise level:-256 dBm
                Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:236  Rx invalid frag:0
                Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:4964   Missed beacon:0

      the invalid misc just keeps going up. I'm associated, but all dhcp requests fail. The WAP is using MAC filtering, but the MAC address is registered, and confirmed.. any ideas?
