when I use WEP on hostap, DHCP doesn't work

Can you ping another host or the AP if you manually configure an IP address on the client(s) having the problem? If so, you have a DHCP problem. If not, it sounds more like the WEP key is incorrect on the client.

hostap works well on my linux with DHCP.

However, If I setup WEP, clients can't get IP by DHCP.

[  /etc/dhcpd.conf  ]
DHCPDARGS=ath0;
ddns-update-style interim;
option domain-name-servers 168.126.63.2;

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
option routers 192.168.1.1;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
range 192.168.1.10 192.168.1.50;
}
service dhcpd start [OK]


- BEFORE using WEP

My client can get IP from my llinux and internet.


-AFTER using WEP

 [  hostapd.conf  ]
wep_default_key=0
wep_key0=123456789a

$hostapd hostapd.conf

My client can't get IP from my linux



what's wrong???
