Thank you Jörg-Volker and Wayne for that information.

I can't get to the wireless access point for a few days, but will try
these and variations thereof Jörg-Volker. 

I have already created an /etc/network/interfaces file with different
variations and will try each one with the others commented out. I went
through the /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.Debian.gz again Wayne
and also kept googling. I thought I had tried it all from 2006 to the
current year, but found more ways to try to make the connection.

I also tried the squeeze installer on the net install CD, which found
the wireless network first try when it didn't have a password, to find
the wireless network now that it had a password. No joy. It couldn't
find it.

Your help is much appreciated.
