Subject: Re: WEP cracking

I asked the person that gave me the 'key' to crack.
It is actually a cisco hash of the key.

If I understand you correctly, there's nothing to crack.  Cracking
gets the key, and you have the key.

Perhaps you mean derive the "password" that was used to generate the
hex key you have?  There are simple, standard routines for that
conversion that can be reversed - no cracking necessary.
