Are you trying to use WEP with a passphrase?  Current snapshots in
Rawhide don't support WEP passphrases, hope to fix that today.  All the
UI bits are in SVN for this already but not active since there's a bit
more code needed to have the dialog pick the right encryption methods
for the wireless device (ie, ignore WPA if your card can't do it) and
network you're connecting to.
