I have removed
network-manager and am trying to configure Wi-Fi with WEP manually.
I am running on an
Here are the commands I am running:
ifconfig wlan0 down iwconfig wlan0 essid "<MYSSID>" iwconfig wlan0 key <WEP Key (hex digits> ifconfig wlan0 up dhclient -v wlan0
The output of
dhclient -v is a stream of
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 3 DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 5
Here is the output of
dmesg | tail (mac address removed)

Here is the output

Please let me know if additional information would help, or if there's some step I'm missing. I have tried the same steps on Ubuntu 13.10, but I get the same result.
Update 1: While I am running
dhclient wlan0 in one terminal, I have
tcpdump -i wlan0 -nl in a different terminal.
tcpdump does not see a single packet actually go out.
Here is the output of
lshw -C network

iwlist wlan0 scan works fine.
