Trying to use my ath wireless with wep.

Thanks to the help here I have been enjoying my ath for almost a week.  
  It works perfectly with the following in rc.conf

ifconfig_wlan0="DHCP ssid virus2"

Now I am trying to get it to connect with wep.  I have set the modem  
open wep pass phrase key to lets say 1122334455 and I have substituted  
the above ifconfig_wlan0 line for:

ifconfig_wlan0="DHCP ssid virus2 wepmode on wepkey 0x1122334455"

and I have also tried it with WPA before DHCP but it doesn't connect  
either way.

I'm sure I'm not understanding something here.

I also have a related question.  Can this not be done on the command  
line and be prompted for a password after the scan to see which AP is  
available?  What would I do after the scan?
