it is possible that you will need to set the security mode with your WEP 
key, it is needed with some configurations. You can obtain more 
information about security mode in the manual page of 'iwconfig' and you 
can probably set this value with YaST.

It is also possible that you are trying with a WEP key of a length that 
is not supported by the installed Windows XP driver. You can see all the 
supported key lengths with the following command in a root shell :

cat /proc/driver/driverloader/<iface>/capabilities

where <iface> should be replaced by the wireless interface name used by 
DriverLoader. This is probably 'wlan0' under SuSE 9.0.

Finally, if you require more assistance, please send at 
support at linuxant.com the output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a
root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
