Manually with ifconfig:
ifconfig ipw0 media autoselect ssid mile_ap nwkey 0xprivatewepkey
ipw0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 0.0.0.0 netmask 0xff000000 broadcast 255.255.255.255
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (autoselect)
status: no carrier
authmode OPEN privacy ON deftxkey 1 wepkey 1:104-bit txpowmax 100
