problems after authentication (wep key?)

My experiment setup is
AP : HostAP on IBM Laptop
client: Window XP on a laptop, with orinico card
Authentication server: IAS Radius, and Active Directory on Windows 2000.
Auth method: PEAP with ms chap2.
Default key is: 1234567890.
I found that if I turn the "wep_key_len_broadcast" off in the Hostapd.conf
file, The client can be authenticated, but it can't get an valid IP address.
I am afraid that something is wrong with the default broadcast key.
Initially, I use 1234567890. The question is why client can't get an IP
address. I use ethereal to check the packages in HostAP side. I can see a
DHCP request from the client, and also a reply from my DHCP server. But this
DHCP reply just can't reach the client.
Anybody knows what is going on, and how should I fix it?
But If it set 'wep_key_len_broadcast = 5'. There is no problem at all.
For some reason, I don't want to rekey the broadcast key, and I want to keep
it as the default 1234567890.
thanks for any solution.
