You may have this sorted by now, but just in case...

The good news is that you have the ural0 device, so now it's just a matter of configuration.

Without encryption the only other thing I needed to specify to ifconfig was the channel (check the settings on your router for the channel number):

eg. ifconfig ural0 inet netmask ssid DRAGON channel 1

and I was on the network.

If that doesn't work, check the settings on your router - have you added the MAC address to the filter list, and are you sure WEP/WPA is turned off, are you in range of the router?

Take a look at this article for info on wireless setup:

Let me know how you get on.
