It is normally put into /etc/start_if.wi0. Here is my file for use at
ifconfig wi0 192.168.168.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig wi0 wepmode on wepkey 0x0123456789abcdef0123456789 ssid babcom
(Key has been changed, of course.
I use Lars Eggert's location script to swap this file with the one I
use when not at home.
