At the moment I don't have Debian installed, but I'm willing to install
it again, if it should make it easier to set up what I need. For my
Ubuntu I made the connection by pppoeconf and NetworkManager is
installed. Running # nm-applet doesn't show it in the Xfce panel's
notification area, but
running # nm-connection-editor does start a GUI.

Thank you, I'll try NetworkManager. I wasn't sure if it doesn't need
additional settings too. I'll try with Ubuntu first and if needed I'll
install Debian.

First I need to understand what I have to set. Doing this doesn't work:

Connection name: Wireless connection 1
[x] Connect automatically
Tab "Wireless"
SSID: oz
Mode: Ad-hoc
Band: Automatic
(Channel: default)
Device MAC address:
Cloned MAC adresse:
MTU: automatic
Tab "IPv4 Settings"
Method: Manual
DNS servers:
Search domains:
(DHCP client ID:)
[x] Require IPv4 addressing for this connection to complete
Nothing edited for "Routes..."
Nothing edited for tab "IPv6 Settings"
Tab "Wireless security"
Security: WE 128-bit Passphrase
Key: 1234567890

Even a reboot won't connect WLAN. And assumed everything should be set
up correctly, there still is no password? I can't find any howto.
