HostAP Digest, Vol 4, Issue 33

Can anyone explain to me how HostAP set up a default wep key ? Since I don't
have a hardware manual of prism2 card, I am a little confused, when I read
the code of WEP key setting under HostAP.
The basic question is: When HostAP sets up a default wep key, a WinXP client
automatically detects this access point has a default wep key. How a WinXP
client know an Access Point has a WEP key, right after association?
I am doing an experiment to allow both of clients using Wep key, or not
using wep key to get access to an Access point. But WinXP client keeps
saying there is a wep key, and just wants to use a Wep key, even I didn't
set up a key for it.
Is there a way to set up a default wep key in HostAP, but WinXP client will
not detect it? So that a user can configure the client freely with or with
WEP key? Of course, at hostAP side, it can detect a
frame is encrypted or not, and deal with it correspondingly.
Thanks for any point.
