Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am not that good with linux yet. I am trying to get a wireless connection with my sl5600 running 3.5.2 poodle. My card is a Pretec 802.11b with orinoco driver. It is reconized as soon as I insert it into Zaurus.

The interface I am trying to use to connect to my router is eth0 (wlan0 does not come up). When I set eth0 to dhcp my card stops blinking and I get a solid green, so I assume it is connecting. When I open up opera I get "could not locate remote server". Most of the instructions I have found say to open up network settings and set dhcp, essid and wep in the GUI. For some reason my GUI does not have an option to set essid or wep. I have not edited any .conf files as I am not sure what to add (if anything). All of the instructions I have found say to simply plug in the card and make some entries in the GUI and it works, so I am a little frustrated.

I installed wellenreiter to see if it could snif my network, and it does find it, so I think my card is ok. Could someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?
Thank you.
