    I'm confused over a wireless network situation. I have the Netgear MR814
    wireless router with the latest firmware and a Cisco 350 Aironet PCMCIA
    card in my notebook computer. With WEP set to 128 bit in the Netgear, I
    am not able to connect with the notebook unless I enter the WEP key, as
    it should be. However, in the Cisco software, if I click "Allow
    Association to Mixed Cells" in the Network Security area, I can
    immediately connect to the Netgear router. It both cases, it is not
    necessary for me to enter the SSID of my router in the notebook.

    Additional development: If I enter a made up WEP key in the Aironet
    software, the notebook connects just fine. Something is really strange.
