I am completely new to linux and need help with wireless connectivity. 
I have installed freebsd 6.3-RELEASE 

I have a toshiba satellite 1005-s157 with a dlink gs630 pcmcia card 
and a linksys wr54g wireless router. 
ifconfig shows status: associated but I cannot ping anything other 
than the static IP address that I gave to the wireless card. 

The card is known working, the AP is known working. 
I do not have DHCP running on the AP and simply assign IP's to all of 
my boxes when I first bring them online. 

wall-->bellsouth router-->linksys AP 
linksys has a static IP of 
bellsouth router has a static IP of 

I have added a default route by running the following. 
route add default 

I also ran this 
ifconfig ath0 ssid "MYAPNAMEHERE" wepmode on weptxkey "MYPASSPHRASE" 

ifconfig ath0 list scan shows the AP that I am trying to connect 
through and shows CAPS of EP only. 

The Question is: 
How am I associated with the AP but cannot ping anything other than 
localhost, and the static IP address that I gave the card? 

All pings except to localhost or 127 or my static ip result in a host 
down message 

contents of /etc/resolv.conf
