    Hi all,

    I've just installed and (finally) configured a DWL-2000AP+ and DWL-G520+
    combo.

    I ran into some *very* strange issues with the WEP key input fields. No
    matter what key size is used, the field seems to be too short. For the
    256 bit key, it seems to truncate (from memory) the last eight ot nine
    hex digits.

    This seems to apply to both the AP and the PCI card.

    Am I doing something wrong? I'm making sure that the key type is HEX and
    not ASCII.

    I finally got the thing to work by just letting the dialog truncate the
    keys and get on with it.

    Anyone else experienced this?
