#6493 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add WEP support to

According to the comment at, setting keymgmt = NONE would result in wpa_supplicant being used to set up WEP.

However, there are two problems:

  • Because of a logic error in, wpa_supplicant_setup_vif is never called when keymgmt = NONE.
  • The script does not handle WEP at all

I reported the logic error in #6491, and attached a patch that fixes it. With that patch, wpa_supplicant_setup_vif will be called when keymgmt = NONE.

What is left is to change so that it will also handle WEP keys.

Please note that you also need to apply for the above patch to actually work.

Patch mentioned in previous comment has been updated. Last patch from #6491 should be good.
