  Unable to connect to WLAN protected with WEP by using the intel 2200bg

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have among others the following kernel available on my system:
  OLD - 2.6.24-19-386 
  NEW - 2.6.24-21-386
  The OLD one allows me to connect to Wireless LAN which are protected with 128-bit WEP by means of the Intel 2200BG wireless card. On the contrary the NEW one doesn't allow me to connect to WEP protected Wireless LAN.
  In particular, if I try to execute the command:
  iwconfig eth0 essid Kismet key s:aabbccddeeff123
  I get the following message:
  Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
       SET failed on device eth0 ; Operation not supported.
  Then by looking at the dmesg output I found the following log entry:
  [ 1647.745604 ] eth0: could not initialize WEP: load module ieee80211_crypt_wep

  If you need more information please let me know.
