I recently received a handed down old IBM Laptop with a 4 GB harddrive and a 700mhz processor so i decided to give Damn Small Linux a try. I have been using Ubuntu for a month so far no problems on my other laptop but i am still fairly new to linux. Problem: My wireless NETGEAR Atheros wireless card is detected and when using iwconfig it shows, Wifi0, Eth0, and Ath0. Though trying to use ifconfig obviously won't connect to my network. How is it i can command my laptop to connect to the wireless network?

Appreciate any and all help.

Thank You,
