WPA works, WEP and Disabled don't...

    I installed the latest Victek non-ND firmware on my WRT54GS last night and i've got what appears to be a rather unusual problem. WPA Personal works fine on the various devices i've tried it with (apart from the hacked Fonera but that's for anther time).

    WEP and security disabled will let me connect but with limited access such that I can't access the web interface and there is no internet. Initially I thought it was a problem with the DHCP server as Windows was assigning the machines APIPA IP addresses but even stting a manual IP resulted in the same problem.

    Does anybody have an idea why WPA works and the others don't? Searching here and elsewhere I can only find people with working disable/WEP security but not WPA!

    In your other post I asked what wireless card you are using. Some manufacturers of hardware have faulty or incompatible driver software, which can cause all sorts of strange problems. Yours sounds pretty similar to the well-known Intel card problems.

    You just might find something to assist you here, I hope it's useful in some way at least.
