Did you configure the client to expect keys ("WEP keys are delivered
automatically" or something like that), but did not configure hostapd
for this? It looks like hostapd was not sending keys, so I would assume
you did not include similar configuration for hostapd. You will need to
including following lines (or with length 5 if you want to use 40-bit
WEP keys) in hostapd.conf for hostapd to send the keying material.
