WEP Configuration wonky in T2?

I also have issues, for example, my Cisco 350 card will _not_ connect to 
my Linksys WRT54G when WEP is enabled, but the same card will do just fine 
to that base station under Windows98 and 2000.

One thing you might try is to change the authentication mode.

iwconfig eth1 key open
iwconfig eth1 key restricted

Techically, "open" is Open System Authentication, and "restricted" is 
Shared Key Authentication, which ahve to be set on your access point.  But 
try both modes just for kicks.
