I have already setup the wireless networking card correctly which name is wpi0,but every time when I use it to link to internet,
I had to key the instuction like this :

ifconfig wpi0 plumb
ifconfig wpi0 up
ifconfig wpi0 dhcp

and then input:

wificonfig -i wpi0 connect mywifi

comment: mywifi is the profile file of connection to my wireless router
I had set it with the instruction before like thisi

wificonfig createprofile mywifi essid=2WIRE678 encryption=wep wepkey1=1234567890

anybody can help me group up the command line and has it running automatic when system reboot
it seems the wireless card always need manual connect to router, that 's trouble.
