debian 3.0 kernel 2.4.20 hostap wep problem

I am using debian 3.0, from the testing tree I grabbed the 
hostap-source. After compiling an new kernel, pcmcia-module and hostap I 
am able to run my little AP. I am using a Netgear 401 PCMCIA Card 
(Firmware 1.3.4) Everything works fine, but when I try to enable WEP I 
get the following error

# iwconfig wlan0 s:12345
wlan0: could not initialize WEP: load module hostap_crypt_wep.o
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
	SET faild on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.

This is strange, because on an W2k laptop WEP is working and when I use 
the orinoco driver I am also able to use WEP.
Any ideas? It is more than possible that I made something wrong :-)

thanks in Advance
