Start wlan0 device at startup in mandrake 10

I need to use these commands in the konsole:
ifconfig wlan0 ******** mtu 576

iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel * essid *******

route add default gw ******* wlan0
to start up my wireless card.
I have tried using the Mandrake control center. But the card will not start at startup.

How can i start it whitout having to start up the konsole everytime i boot..?

yeah, its a pain isnt it? i have that too in 9.2.
you could make a small script tho, and call it up at start up.

save it as something like and have it like this

ifconfig wlan0 ******** mtu 576
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel * essid *******
route add default gw ******* wlan0

i guess that would be the thing i'd do.....i havent used MDK 10 so i cant say if u can configure the wireless in a different way
