Hi list!

I bought a new WLAN-router and successfully installed LEDE.
Now I'm porting the configuration of the old WRT to the new.

Problem: I have a WLAN, restricted per MAC-List and Firewall (use a VLAN
with strong restricted access) "protected" with WEP.
This is because I have a device that only can WEP.

In LEDE I installed the paket "wpad", in order to use the WPA2-EAP (used
by the other devices in my home).

Well, now I can choose many WPA encryption mechanism, but I don't have

Do I need some other paket to manage WEP?
The only alternative for me will be to leave this WLAN without
authentication, but of course I'm not happy to do that...
