Great, I got it working (almost) with the following:
wepmode on wepkey 2:40-bit xxxxxxxx
Now status is "associated" but I still cannot get to the internet.
I have to go through the wireless router (10.0.0.139) which is connected
through the DSL modem (10.0.0.138) etc.
I can ping myself (10.0.0.153), but when I try and ping other machines
(10.0.0.15x) hooked up via the router, or the router and/or the modem, I
sendto: Host is down.
And when I try to ping my dns server I get:
Sendto: No route to host.
What about the stationname value?
Under my old Windows system it worked fine with these settings, so I know
they are alright, but now that I have dumped Windows for good, it would sure
be nice to access the network.
