Yes, but only fully in 0.6.x.  0.5.x doesn't have the ability to tell
the card which frequency to communicate on, which is needed for some
drivers to successfully complete the adhoc setup.

Yes, for WPA-PSK and WEP.

With 0.6.x, yes.  With 0.5.x and lower, no.

Do you mean having your client connect to an "open" access point?  If
so, then yes.

>  - AP connection with WEP?

Do you mean having the client connect to a WEP AP?  If so, then yes.
