I've been using the same wep-key since long, and after switching from Windows 7 to Ubuntu, I'm encountering a strange problem, one which google doesn't seem to help with.
I've got a belkin router and a broadcom wireless built-in adapter which works fine when I turn off my wep-encryption.
But when I turn it on, it doesn't seem to connect, and I'm using the correct wep-hex-phrase.
Is this a known issue (google and forum search shows no info)???
I don't want to be stuck with an open network...
using 12.04lts version
