I tried to change the current transmit key of wireless card on Linux with
iwconfig, but couldn't. The following is what I tried,
# iwconfig eth0 key 1234-5678-90 
# iwconfig eth0 key 
# iwlist eth0 key
eth0 2 key sizes : 40, 104bits
4 keys available :
: 1111-1111-11 (40 bits)
: 1234-5678-90 (40 bits)
Current Transmit Key: 
I expected to current transmit key shows  instead of  in the above
exmaple. I believe I tried as described in the man page or some documents
on the web.
I tried this with Lucent Orinoco card. I'm running RedHat 7.1 with 2.4.17
kernel (I compiled). And I'm using wirelesstools 23. I compiled the device
driver with pcmcia package 3.1.33, and used orinoco driver (orinoco_cs.o
If anyone know how to change the current transmit key, plz let me know.
Thanks in advance.
