Title: R: [zd1211-devs] Question for WEP Key when it is wrong inserted

OK, Daniel,
so you mean that for the protocol 802.11 even if the set of wep-key on my usb wi-fi key is wrong the answer of iwconfig tells me the MAC of AP where I try to associate?
thanks, Domenico

Unless you are using shared key authentication (and I'd strongly advise
you not to use this), authentication and association can successfully
complete with the wrong WEP key. This is just how 802.11 works.
