wpa_supllicant on Windows XP : stange DHCP behavior when using WEP

Hi all,


I've got a problem and I don't really understand what happening. I want to
connect my Windows client (Netgear WG111v2) to my hotspot (WEP secured).

A Linux box with Hostapd/Chillispot/Radius works as an access point.

The Windows XP client uses wpa_supplicant to establish the connection.


Here is my problem:

*	Without WEP, all works fine;
*	With WEP, the access point never receive the DHCP Discover request
(tcpdump doesn't see any packet on the wlan0 interface) but (it's strange!)
I can see (ethereal on windows) the DHCP Discover packets sent on the client
interface. In the /var/log/messages, I can see that the association is
established by hostapd.


So I don't really understand what happening.


The configuration seems to be ok because I can connect my client to the
hotspot (with WEP enable) using WZC.


Please anyone can help me?


Thanks a lot for your help,
