We've got some Cisco 1100 AP who we configure with a static IP, and a 128bit WEP key.
After we actived the wep key we don't receive an ip address on the clients.
We are getting authenticated, but that's it.
When we use no security , everything works well.
I allready fill in the wep key through the cli - no luck
Upgrading to latest IOS (123-7.JA1) also had no succes.
Anyone has some hints/tips what I'am doing wrong?
I can't believe this is a bug ?
I believe that you are possibly not correctly entering the WEP key on one end - I'd suggest putting it into a notepad doc, and pasting it into both the AP and your client config...
Make sure you don't put in a trailing space or anything that might confuse it - also check whether your client expects ASCII or HEX keys..
I did lot's of thing to make sure the WEP key was correct. I'am sure of it this aint the problem.
Nobody else got problems with WEP128 and DHCP ?
One thing I've noticed on several occaisions is that although you enter the WEP key in the GUI if you look at the text config (telnet to the AP and do a sho run) it's not there! Either enter the key from the CLI or keep re-entering through the GUI until it appears in the config. The effect of this problem is exactly as you describe.
