    Exclamation Can't connect to WEP encrypted home network.

    When I try to connect to my home network, which is encrypted with WEP, I can't go farther than obtaining IP Address. It stays there for a little while, then it says: "Can't get IP".
    I have not configured Static IP/Static DNS.

    I assume you're using WICD. I've got the same issue connecting to WEP networks. Apparently it's a bug with WICD.

    Try setting a static IP. From my research, this worked for a few people.

    Thanks,

    Al

    I tried setting a static IP and it connected, but I weren't able to surf the web.
    And while I have a thread open, I tried using Ettercap today, to try network sniffing, but ettercap didn't catch anything of the info I submitted on any website. I have removed the # characters in the etter.conf file and I did every step I needed, but it still didn't work. The Chk_Poison plugin said the ARP Poisoning was sucsessful, but I know not to always trust that.

    You can't use Atheros athk9 drivers to connect to WEP on BT5-RC2. Its a bug with kernel 3.2.6. Search this forum or google your driver and kernel 3.2.6 and you'll find bug reports. I had the same problem so I downgraded to RC1.

    Try installing NetworkManager instead..See if it works..It will automatically uninstall wicd.....

    I use Debian testing with NetworkManager 0.8 and no problem with Athk5 and athk9 (pcmcia express card) using aircrack-ng...I can even connect to my router with no hassels...I have installed ettercap, wireshark, sslstrip, metasploit, dsniff suite, aircrack-ng suite, apache2 (for the dnsspoof), nmap latest version (had to compile and install) with NSE, etc...It all works like a charm....kernel in testing is 3.2.6, gnome-shell (beautiful looks), Networkmanager0.8, etc...All in 64-bit arquitecture.

    Hope it helps...
