    Hi people,

    As the title suggests, I'm having no luck connecting to my network when WEP is enabled, when it's disabled it connects fine.

    I'm using 64 bit encryption and an ASCII code (with the ASCII box ticked in wlassistant). I'm on FC4 using an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI.

    I have managed to connect using WEP with system-config-network tool so I'm sure it's not a hardware issue.

    See below for what it says,

    Cheers,
    Tim
