Wireless Network Problem in Ubuntu 8


I installed the driver with NDisWrapper and I can't seem to connect. I entered in all my wireless router info in network settings. Below is what I got when I ran inwcofig.

matt@2WIRE396:~$ sudo iwconfig
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSIDff/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power:20 dBm Sensitivity=0/3
RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Encryption keyff
Power Managementff
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Any ideas on what the problem is and what I should do. I wonder what the Host name should be set to.

I usuually do

iwconfig wlan0 essid ESSID
iwconfig lwan0 ap MAC
iwconfig wlan0 key KEY

dhclient wlan0

ESSID is the name of the wireless network
MAC is ap's mac address
KEY is the wep or wpa encrypted key, any of key index 1-4 will work.

After dhclient wlan0, you should see so and so bound to an internal ip address to know that it worked.

I have Ubuntu 8.04. I can't seem to set the ESSID and I don't know what my Host setting should be.
