I can't believe it. LOL.. That was sooo simple for the key.  I totally
misread the man page (oups) with the [2] at the end of the example of of
the s:password.  All this time I had not thought of the 'password' is
the password of the base station. (Hanging my head down low) lol

Now since it accepted the password and the encrytion key is displayed
with iwconfig and the settings look to be on.. I still can't ping the
network through the wireless.  It seams like I am missing something
