This is what I've got...
toshiba laptop with ar5005g wireles card running fedora core 6
trying to connect to a Linksys broadband Wireless-G router
The router name is "Night" the ssid is "NightWire" It's using 128 bit WEP encription. running on channel 5 with broadcasting turnd off.
this is what iwconfig shows me for my current config (encription key changed for security reasons)

durring boot it says trying to bring up wifi0 but fails. I found a program called Wireless assistant that if I select my router (if it shows up in the list since broadcasting is off) it'll connect just fine. If I try ifup wifi0 from the command line I get nothing... any ideas are welcome.
Also my laptop has a button to turn the antenna on and off. does anyone know if theres any support for that? Or support for if I move in and out of range of my router?
