I noticed on my girlfriend's laptop, who has an ipw2100 wifi, that
connections to her plain wep secured network are broken: wpa_cli reports
successful auth, and everything looks okay, but I don't get an ip from
the dhcp client.

Does anyone else notice this problem? Does has anything to do
about this?

FYI, this is reported in debian as well:
