dhcp client wifi setup



I am obviously missing the obvious here.  An IBM Thinkpad, sid, orinoco
wifi card talks to the Netgear DG834G router when security is disabled,
but when I turn WEP on it doesn't connect.  

/etc/network/interfaces has 

    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    wireless-essid Coigxxxxxxxx
    wireless-key xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xx

But ifup eth0 gives

    etho: New link status: Connected (0001)
    Listening on LPF/eth0/00:02:2d:a6:07:bb
    Sending on   LPF/eth0/00:02:2d:a6:07:bb
    DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8
    ...more similar...
    No DHCPOFFERS received.
    No working leases in persistent database.

    Exiting.

    Failed to bring up eth0.

Which tells me I left something out.  But what?

Help me someone?
