WEP "key index" in Linux

There is a specific wireless network that I am trying to get onto in linux. I can get onto it in windows by setting the "Key Index" field in the network properties to 2 (instead of the default 1). Does anyone know how to set this value in linux? I tried playing with all of the iwconfig options (channel and what not), but to no avail.
