My laptop with wireless card Intel pro wireless 2200BG won't connect to wep (64 bit) wireless network. I tried with "ifconfig /dev/net/iprowifi2200/0 join SSID mypassword" and also with the "wireless_networks" file located in /boot/common/settings/network/, but the card gets the wrong IP addresses (my router is in DHCP mode). works only with the open networks (in this way gets the correct IP addresses). The laptop is a HP Pavilion DV4231EA. Haiku version: 40074 GCC 4 Hybrid.

is your WEP password a string or a hexadecimal address? Hex passwords need a 0x placed in front of them (0xbeefbeef)

My WEP password is hexadecimal. I put "0x" in front (so: 0xMYHEXADECIMALPASSWORD), but still the connection won't works..

p.s: on my laptop i have found also this bug about shutdown/reboot hang:
