    I have been tinkering with wep at home. I think I may have your solution. After loading the drivers, you have to assign the essid, enable encryption with the correct key and then query the dhcp server for an address like this:

    1) Load drivers (sounds like you got that figured out)
    2) at a console prompt type: iwconfig ath0 essid "your essid here" key ########## (enclude the quotes and replace the ## symbols with your correct key)
    3) dhcpcd ath0

    Note: replace ath0 with whatever device name your driver assigned to your nic. HTH

    if this really worked for you can you give me the exact command?

    I will try it.
    Although my solution for now is I got a wireless router so I take it to school and I install it into the wired port and then take the class computer and wire it to the wireless switch and then all of my classmates can get a wireless dhcp which allows me the Linux user and my friend Jason the Mac user and all the other M$ machines logon at the same time.
    BTW: You should see all of the Linux interest once I pop on the wireless.

    I will have them all in Linux soon muahahahaha.
