    Connecting to my wep encrypted routwork

    Hey everyone. Im having trouble obtaining an ip w/ my wep encrypeted router. I am using KDE 3.2 to set the connection. Ive copyed the key into all of the "Crypto keys" boxes. What i have been doing to start my net using my neighbors wirless (unencrypted) was just clicking on the Config 1 and clicked Activate Configuration and Kwifi shows that i have connected. from there i use dhcpcd wlan0 renew and i obtain a ip. but when i connect to my wireless i cant obtain an ip? what should i be doing?

    What drivers are you using, if you are using the kernel drivers ( if your interface is run using a kernel driver or the hostap_cs driver) than I can help you. If you are using linux-wlan-ng (Very very depreciated I think) then I would consider finding a new driver. If your not sure, tell me what kind of card you have and give me the output of lsmod and lspci and I will see what I can do.

    Let me rephrase what I said, linux-wlan-ng is depreciated if you are using a 2.6.x kernel

    Just a warning, cracking a WEP key is very easy...

    Sorry about being so vivid but here is what i have/ am running

    SlackWare 2.4.26( i kno its alittle outdated)
    54g(TM) Broadcom 802.11b/g
    I used ndiswrapper to load bcmwl5.inf

    what i really want to do is to be able to run airsnort and map out the neighborhood :-) but it looks like with the driver that i have loaded isnt compatable? and i still cant gain access to my encryted wlan. / scan for available net works

    The output from lsmod is as followed

    Well, as much as it sucks, you will NOT be able to use any sniffer (kismet, airsnort etc) with the Broadcom b/g card, trust me I have one in my HP zv5220 laptop and there is no native driver, and the ndiswrapper does not support monitor mode. You can connect to a router with the following commands.

    Code:
    iwconfig [interface] essid [SSID Name]
    iwconfig [interface] mode managed
    iwconfig [interface] key [full binary WEP key]    ##--If applicable
    dhcpcd [interface]

    Now on that token, you can pick up a cheap PrismII based 802.11b card for ~$20 and that will work out nicely.
