I could not get the wireless working yet.  :-(

$/sbin/ifconfig wlan0
wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:19:7D:BD:72:B5
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

Also for wired eth0 interface I get in "dmesg"
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
But for wireless wlan0 interface I do **not** get such line which
obviously means a fauilure :-(

I do get a follwoing line in there
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
despite my being able to ping to wlan0 ip address... but not to any
other external IP.
