#170 closed bug (fixed)

Wifi Internet uplink with WEP not working

Reported by: hubba@… Owned by:

Component: fon-base-firmware Version:
Cc: Hardware:


I know WEP is insecure but that is irrelevant.

When configuring the uplink with WEP the fonera will not connect to the uplink Wifi access point. On further investigation using ssh I found that "uci get wireless.uplink.key1" would give me my WEP key with an s: in front.

So I modified /lib/fon/ line 212 from:

uci_set "wireless" "uplink" "key1" "s:$key"

and changed to:

uci_set "wireless" "uplink" "key1" "$key"

Now everything is working appart from a slight cosmetical error on the dashboard where the status displays my netmask as the default gateway for some reason but checking in the shell everything is fine:

Firmware Version: Internet connection
