Comment(by gawlitza):

 Hi Marek,
 answering your question via mail does not work (mail returned with not
 known address).
 The hang occurs if you want to establish a wep-key-secured wlan-
 connection. It occurs NOT with unsecured wlan. If you disable wep-key
 security in the router and let the wep key in iwconfig empty, then wifi
 works and you can install packages and so on ! If you set wep-key with
 iwconfig and then - which is necessary - set the proper essid, then system
 freezes, you must remove all plugs and battery to reboot. Therefore I
 think this is a kernel / kernel-module / driver problem, and not a problem
 of applications in rootfs. This is reproducable every time I tried.
 I have frerunner full-flashed with Om2008.8-gta02-20080903.uImage.bin and
