It needs to support the SIOCSIWAUTH call and the IW_AUTH_80211_AUTH_ALG
sub-command.  Into which you pass IW_AUTH_ALG_LEAP.  The driver _should_
support LEAP correctly, but I have never tested LEAP with libertas.

LEAP-based WPA works fine, but I can't find a way to get "LEAP with dynamic WEP keys" working.

Could you say which exact kernel version you're using?

Can you provide some debug output (libertas_debug=0x43a7 is usually
pretty good) of an attempted association using LEAP?

What firmware version and interface (CF, SDIO, USB) are you using?
