in my rc.conf:
ifconfig_rum0=3D"DHCP wepmode on weptxkey 1 wepkey 1:0xBC45AD1BD5 ssid
ReseauWIFI"

Maybe your problem is that wepkey is malformatted in your command
If not, I didn't try to understand, but I also had troubles with the
position of SSID keyword.
(ifconfig arg error, might be your problem)
(btw: I also had problem with ssid containing spaced characters)


Later, I tried to set it up as an hostap, it seems to work well.
But when I try to connect from an other computer, I'm unable to to join the
network.
(running under 7.2, I compiled the kernel adding a define matching my
device, based on a similar (I hope so...) chipset)


good luck
