HostAP 02-09-12

I've normally got a 128/104-bit key, put I'm playing with some old 64/40-bit cards at the moment - I thought I could just use hostap_crypt_conf to set the encryption/decryption to NULL for these specific cards, but it doesn't seem to work.

I can't get anything going until I use iwconfig to set the default key to off for everything.

I used hostap_crypt_conf -p wlan0 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx NULL

And indeed, hostap_crypt_conf -l wlan0 does seem to correspond:

Default keys
  algorithm: WEP
  TX key idx: 1

  key 1: xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx xx
  key 2:
  key 3:
  key 4:

Keys for 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  algorithm: NULL

  key 1:
  key 2:
  key 3:
  key 4:

I'm also at the moment having my dmesg filled up with "wlan0: entries remaining in delayed crypt deletion list"

What am I doing wrong ?
