Well, it should be possible. Whether it works with ndiswrapper is
another question.. Have you tried asking this on the ndiswrapper mailing
list? I have not used ndiswrapper for a very long time, so I don't
really know what to expect as far as functionality with WEP is
concerned. If this works with manual iwconfig configuration but not with
wpa_supplicant, I would assume there could be some kind of race
condition or incompatibility in the order the operations are done when
using wpa_supplicant with ndiswrapper.
