Thanks for the reply
1) How do you input the WEP key under Linux?
I currently enter the WEP in linux using the neat command (System tools > network device) which brings up the interface device listings via the gui. ithen click on interface eth1 in the gui and put the details of the WEP key in there 9i forget what tab it is now)
I can connect to the wireless with my windows XP laptops
