Ok, so WEP is lame but I have a wi-fi webcam and it does not work with WPA or WPA2 so I'm kind of stuck there. I recently flashed my Nexus S 4g with CyanogenMod 7.1.1 and it seems like WEP support is just plain broken. I can change wi-fi security to WPA, WPA2 or "Open" and CM works fine. Change it back to WEP and nothing. Same results with CM9. I've tried entering both the passphrase for the WEP key as well as the HEX key itself and to no avail. Is this a known issue or broken on purpose?

try cm 7.2 which is the latest and greatest stable release of Gingerbread. One thing though, why have you not upgraded to the latest ICS? – t0mm13b Aug 15 '12 at 1:34
I updated to the latest stable ICS (CM9) a couple days ago with the same results. – Xdart Dart Aug 15 '12 at 10:56
My nexus s was able to connect to a friend's WEP 'secured' WiFi. Both with cm7/9. – ce4 Sep 10 '12 at 9:54
