env: kernel 2.6.31/ gcc 4.3.4/ make 3.81/ debian unstable
I double check the related setting again. It looks correct to me, but I think there should have something missing and I am not aware of it. They are follow:
Firmware located at /lib/firmware contains
The result of lsmod | grep iwlagn
iwlagn 73340 0
iwlcore 95716 1 iwlagn
mac80211 124608 2 iwlagn, iwlcore
cfg80211 76636 3 iwlagn, iwlcore, mac80211
led_class 3868 3 iwlcore, hp_accel, sdhci
I can not find any kernel module with `lsmod | grep 4965`, which is the module detected in the past. I also read on the internet saying that iwl4965 is iwlagn in fact, as follow:
The syslog shows

It looks like the firmware is loaded, but I do not know why the link is not ready.
The iwconfig reault

The interfaces configuration

Does these look correct?
Thanks for the help.
I appreciate it.

It depends if the typos above are only in your post and not in your interfaces file. If what is really in your interfaces file is as below, then it should work for wep.
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
I'm pretty sure that what I posted is correct. There must be some other problem.
From your original post it seems that you are able to use some gui tool to get your wireless working. If so can you please post the output of the following for two cases
1. When the wireless is working: after bring it up with the gui
2. When it is not working: just after failing to bring it up on the command line.
