Unhappy Using Ubuntu 7 + Netgear WG511T card

The card can see my router - so I appear to be able to set up wireless access but I can't get on the Internet

do you have an "unsecure" setup? or do you have encryption set? mac-filtering maybe?
i have the same card before. i has an atheros chipset (so you'd see it as athX)
and it works out of the box.
to connect to an unsecured network, i have the ff in /etc/networks/interfaces:

auto ath0
wireless-essid NetHome
iface ath0 inet dhcp

during bootup it should automatically connect to NetHome network.
