It turns out this error message is a direct result of lack of wlan_wep
neither loaded as module nor compiled in kernel.

However I still could not make the card work (even though it works in
Ubuntu Linux) after having wlan_wep compiled in, but at least I
eliminated the

SIOCS80211: Invalid argument

error message, which may be helpful for someone who finds this thread by
using this error message as search key to google.
