scrap all that, i figured out what i was doing wrong when trying to
config it using dhcp on my router, and then magic .. setup and working
with wep and maxing out my 512mb cable :o)
one question remaining tho .. how do i get the kernal modules and the
ath0 interface setup automatically?
atm i am having to log in as root (sudo isn't setup by default for me in
mandrake 9, summat else to learn) and then login as a normal user to get
going online .... far from ideal.
crack this and i will be sorted :o)
