Hello.
First, thanks very much Serialmonkey for all your work, and sorry for my english which isn't fluently. [imgfb01u7u0]http://yelims2.free.fr/Forum/Panneau23.gif[/imgfb01u7u0]

I've got a PCI card using chipstet RT2500, and I wish connect it to my wireless network (WEP encryption, don't use wpa_supplicant). The kernel version is 2.6.28, on ArchLinux.
--> With the Legacy driver rt2500-CVS, it works perfectly. [imgfb01u7u0]http://yelims5.free.fr/TopOuNul/Applaudissements02.gif[/imgfb01u7u0]
--> With the rt2x00 driver, it doesn't work. [imgfb01u7u0]http://yelims.free.fr/Groumph/Triste10.gif[/imgfb01u7u0]

It works very well with the Legacy driver rt2500-CVS.
What should I do for using new driver rt2x00 ?
Thank you in advance for any replies and best regards. [imgfb01u7u0]http://yelims.free.fr/Coucou/Coucou18.gif[/imgfb01u7u0]
