Ok that worked, although I have some routing issues now. The manual method did not work though.
eth0 AR6000 802.11g ESSID:"morrisnetwork2"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.422 GHz Access Point: 00:1D:5A:BB:FA:A9
Bit Rate=48 Mb/s Tx-Power=16 dBm Sensitivity=0/3
Link Quality:207/94 Signal level:-144 dBm Noise level:-96 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:17 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:11
Although it says encryption key off, but I presume wpa_supplicant is handling that.
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:CF:74:20:A8
inet addr:192.168.1.70 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:1657 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:832 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:725595 (708.5 KiB) TX bytes:37892 (37.0 KiB)
So its connected to my access point, and I turned off eth0, but I cannot ping the wireless, I'll
work on that it may be routing or it may be encryption.
