Connecting to Router


How do I connect to an Accesspoint/router?

when I do "wlist wlan0 scan", it finds something in cell 01, but I have no clue what to do after that.

I am running on a Fedora Croe 4.

ifconfig wlan0 up
iwlist wlan0 scan
take the essid name as a note

iwconfig wlan0 essid [myessid] key [myWepKey _ If applicable]
dhcpcd wlan0 (or) pump -i wlan0

there you go.
