I have added a new script to the ones provided by Guylhem in 1.0rc4 (just added wep stuff to net.wifi.local).

This one is to connect to a WEP enabled network.


STEP BY STEP GUIDE:

1) Download and unpack attached script (net.wifi.wep)
2) Change network setup on lines 3 to 24
3) On the Zaurus' console become root:
su <enter>
When asked for password, press <enter>.
4) Copy the file to the Zaurus' /usr/local/bin/
i.e. cp /mnt/cf/net.wifi.wep /usr/local/bin
5) Define script perms:
chown root:qpe /usr/local/bin/net.wifi.wep
chmod 0755 /usr/local/bin/net.wifi.wep


To CONNECT:
net.wifi.wep

To DISCONNECT:
net.wifi.off

Optional:
You can edit /etc/resolv.conf to match the DNS servers provided by your ISP. Some may find that name resolution is faster that way

I have checked this setup just after a fresh NAND restore so I hope everyone is able to connect this time wink.gif.

FIX: Sometimes wep keys do not get loaded by wlanctl-ng. Waiting a little bit more and setting up WEP keys after bringing up the network interface makes a big difference.

I have updated the attached script.

I will backup and reflash and try again in a day or two and let you know if the latest suggestions work. I am using 40bit encryption currently, I will switch to 128 and see if it makes a difference.
