It worked, it worked. But only once!!! I can't believe. But at least, it is a prove that with WEP it works.
I dont know what I did, played around all the time with iwpriv and iwconfig and iwlist and so on ^^ (and also did the things described in here: http://www.linux-fuer-alle.de/doc_sh...d=152&catid=16)
and finally did "dhclient wlan0" and it worked! It worked (although i only played around in console, i looked and in system-network-config and it showed my wlan0 activated!).
And then restarted computer and wanted to try it out with no-root, and it didnt worked. Restarted and tried with root again, tried to do the same things as before, but it doesnt want to work anymore!! Whyever. I'm so confused and depressed.
Please help me and thanks so far

Once system-config-network is up, highlight your device and click 'edit.' See that 'set ip automatically by DHCP' has been checked, and that DHCP is running in your router.
click on the 'wireless settings' tab.
Put in SSID, the name of your router's wireless service if any,
and type in the WEP key as a single string of characters without dashes preceded by '0x.' As in:
Then go out of wireless setting and activate the device. Good Luck.
EDIT: being wireless, you really should use a static ip, but you can worry about that after getting it going with DHCP.
