Question [Q] Accessing WEP Protected Networks

Hello guys

My university uses a WEP protected network and I noticed that with the stock 4.xx roms, I can access the network. When on custom CM roms however, only Werewolf kernel (tested v7, v8 and v800b) works with my university's network. Other kernels (stock CM, OPrime/Play, Iodak) cannot connect. Is there a way to add the WEP functionality to these kernels since Werewolf appears to have the ability to do so?

I believe WEP isn't officially supported anymore due to security issues. I'm not aware of any solution unfortunately, so there are three things you can do now:
1. Use the kernel that worked.
2. Downgrade
3. Point out to your school that they need to update their Wi-Fi network.

You think that this problem have something to do with kernel?

I asked this same question like 5 times in 5 different threads, only werewolf kernel can connect to wep OPEN and none other kernel. But with WEP shared all kernels can connect, and yes it's a KERNEL issue.

Log coming up..
