After many weeks of pain I got my wireless card working. It's very unstable and very slow..... very very slow(I can barely load pages). I am guessing it's because I don't have it configured to my network. I have been trying to follow the instructions in the Readme to my drivers(linux-wlan-ng) and it seems I have to modify a lot of .configs no problem really except I need to know my brodcast, netmask, and gateway and I have no idea were to get that. All I know is my IP and my DNS. How can I get that information. I have Windows which I can use to get it but I don't know how. Can anyone help me? EDIT: I also need to know my APs SSID. which I have no idea what it is.

iwlist eth1 scan <- BAM@! ESSIDs available!
iwconfig eth1 essid NAME <- BAM@! switches to that ESSID
dhclient eth1 <- BAM@! Connects

There are ways of automating this, as well.
