    Hi there,

     

    You should inform your system that you're using an exadecimal key!
    Do so by writing 0x before your wep key.

     

    Hope this helps,
    best regards

    The recommended way is to specify the wepkey in hexadecimal digits.
    ifconfig wi0 wepkey 0x1deadc0dedeadc0dedeadc0de1

    man ifconfig:
