It looks like the wpa_supplicant 2.0 import now checks the
cryptocapability mask when trying to validate WEP usage.

iwn(4) does not populate the mask with any values so wpa_supplicant sees
a value of 0.

I added the capabilites and can associate, but dhclient cannot get an IP
from the AP.  I assume then, that once again, I don't know what I'm

More or less, this is what I tried:

                device_printf(dev, "could not read EEPROM, error %d\n",


p.s. Allan Jude came up with a hack for wpa_supplicant that seems to
work, so I've bcc'd him here to get a patch out of him.
