Please POst a working ifcfg-wlan0 file


hi there, my ifcfg file doesn't seem to want to work.

I usually use dhclient to make my wireless work right, but now i want to try this ifup wlan0 thing.

here is my current file/script whateverthehellitiscalled!
Code:
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
IPV6INIT=no
ONBOOT=no
USERCTL=yes
PEERDNS=yes
GATEWAY=
TYPE=Wireless
DEVICE=wlan0
HWADDR=00:90:4b:f7:00:xx
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
NETMASK=
DHCP_HOSTNAME=
IPADDR=
DOMAIN=
ESSID=shamdog
CHANNEL=11
MODE=Managed
RATE=Auto
WIRELESS_KEY=C03B0XXX6EF64B31B2FC3A9856
Questions: how do i really set my WEP code? is it right in the above file? second do i have to add the name of my computer here somewhere? Third, is this file correct, should i add other things that i don't know yet? help a brother out.

Wow. You did not get free tech support for a whole 26 minutes after you put in a request for it. Horrible! I can understand your frustration with such a slow response time.

Yes, I am being sarcastic.
