DWL-G122 Ubuntu Feisty wont connect, shows up on scan

Using Ubuntu Feisty, Kernel 2.6.20-15-generic and a DWL-G122 H/W Ver. C1 wireless adapter, I have the adapter recognized and set up using native drivers (not sure which), and an iwlist scan shows up the base station. Iīve downed the interface before setting the essid (putting it back up again after of course), everything looks as though itīs connected, except that when I ping the router I get an error. I just pinged it then and thought 'Yes! it worked!' then I realised that it was going through eth0.

abrenecki@ubuntu-L30:~$ sudo iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

I should point out thereīs no WEP key on the network. Also, Iīm using a Ipex-Asus L8400, and not my new Toshiba L30 as the hostname suggests, just in case thatīs relevant.
