0. So, clean boot, you didn't touch resource policies in any way (SHR
1. Then ``vim /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'' and configure the
way you need.
2. Then ``fsoraw -r WiFi -- wpa_supplicant -ieth0 -Dwext
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'' and wait for it to associate.
3. ``dhclient eth0'' (or whatever your favourite client is)
4. enjoy

If the step 2 or 3 fails, then 
2.5 ``wmiconfig -i eth0 --power=maxperf''
