Re: I'm one step away from Airport

This worked!  When I get it down to a system I'll post here what
exactly I did, for other cluebots like me.
Basically, though,

xueexueg:/home/o# ifconfig eth1 netmask
xueexueg:/home/o# route add default gw dev eth1
xueexueg:/home/o# iwconfig eth1 essid ARTFL
xueexueg:/home/o# iwconfig eth1 enc ten_digits_of_hex

Thanks a lot!
