I have found that hostap is the best driver for my IBM T20 with D-Link 650, RH 7.2. Even the latest orinoco driver works at a snail's pace (100 sec per megabyte upload, yes 100s!) while hostap runs at a second or two per megabyte, as it should. So congratulations to Jouni,
But if I want to use it on a WEP AP, I can give the key using iwconfig by hand, but if the driver then drops out, even if it restarts itself, it seems not to know the key thereafter till I tell it, by hand, again. Obviously a pain, since the drop-outs tend to happen quite regularly (at least on the older version, I've only just upgraded to 05-19).
Is there a way to put the required key into a configuration file? Or is there a way to get the driver to remember it?
