After boot, I go to the control panel and run the iwconfig (iwconfig_setup), choose wlan0 and the necessary variables and it connects fine.
How do I get this to work automatically during boot?
I'm using a PCMCIA WPC54G. I had to use the version 3.0 drivers off linksys website and ndiswrapper (wow what a PITA)
Here is /etc/network/interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
# automatically added when upgrading
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
