I am having wireless troubles.  I believe it is a WEP problem.
Here is some troubleshooting output.  Sorry so long.  Sorry if unnecessary.

I don't know if this is relavent or not, but I don't get a gui.

I have kwifimanger working, but when I connect to a visible network I
am not allowed when the AP has WEP enabled.

I just want my wireless to work.  What do I need to do?

Thanks in advance,
-Daniel
