> There is a network protocol for adding it (something like !0 ADDWEPKEY bssid hexkey) live.

Thanks for the hint. For the rest of the world (and Google), this is how I did it:

$ telnet localhost 2501
!0 REMOVE TIME
!0 ADDWEPKEY {bssid},{hex key}

For the protocol, see section "16. Talking to Kismet" in README.
I found the "ADDWEPKEY" command in http://www.blueskylark.org/kismetaclient/protocol.htm


> You should consider upgrading to a modern release though, they're much more flexible and have several wep-assists as plugins.

I would love to upgrade, but unfortunately Debian doesn't have a newer package. A Bug report was filed in June, but nothing happened: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=534884 :(

How about kismetwireless.net supplying an "official" Debian package, like torproject.org does, too?
