ibook g3 airport problem

Hi there,
i got someproblems with my airport. I want to set an 128bit ascii wep
key. I'm running a 2.6.11 kernel image i installed with apt-get

The error is:

ibook:/home/espo# iwconfig eth0 key "s:xxxx"
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device eth0 ; Operation not supported.

And yes eth0 is my airport device.

Here iwconfig output and ifconfig output.

ibook:/home/espo# iwconfig 
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth1      no wireless extensions.

eth2      no wireless extensions.

sit0      no wireless extensions.
