Heh, I'm wondering if you did the same thing I did. You set the WEP key, but 
did you turn WEP on? ;)

Check your ifconfig. Are you getting an IP via DHCP, or is it statically 
assigned? Does it say that your NIC is associated in ifconfig?

Gotta love FBSD ifconfig. Having wireless support in ifconfig saves quite a 
bit of time. Didn't realize how much I liked it until I was forced to set up 
linux on a laptop. :)
