This is a fresh installation of 10.0-RELEASE (amd64).
Despite following the relevant section in the handbook, I can't seem to get wireless networking (at home) set up properly.
The router is on 192.168.1.1, using WEP (yes, I know) and I am trying to give FreeBSD a fixed IP address of 192.168.1.3.
Here is the output of ifconfig wlan0:
wlan0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.3 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255

But when I try, for example, to ping 188.8.131.52 (Google's public DNS), all packets are lost.
What am I doing wrong? What other information should I provide?
