Is it? Really? With upper case initials on the configuration variables?
When I try something like that I get

	Line 372: unknown network field 'Wep_key0'.

as the startup error message.

Since I can't even get wpa_supplicant to work with WEP for myself I'm
afraid I'm unable to help you aswell.

However try telling the list what hardware you are using and start
wpa_supplicant with the options "-dd" to get as much debugging
information as possible.

Can't you please try not having crap like this in your mails. It does
nothing else than bringing people to believe that HCL Technologies is an
unserious business with employees that don't know how to use e-mail.
