Jonathan, thank you for your reply. Below is the output of iwconfig eth2:
root at localhost host]# iwconfig eth2
eth2 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"default" Nickname:"localhost"
Mode:Ad-Hoc Frequency:2.437GHz Cell: 02:E0:5B:D1:4C:D0
Bit Rate=11Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:XXXX-XXXX-XX Security mode:open
Link Quality:8/94 Signal level:-67 dBm Noise level:-154 dB m
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
At this point, both lights on the card are on, but I am still not able to connect to the Internet. I feel I am really close, but yet I have been battling this issue for several weeks now. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

However, I have not been able to successfully configure WEP option (which works seamlessly under Windows XP). The free trial will be expiring very soon and I would like to purchase a license, but I am reluctant to do so without being able to fully unilize the option of WEP protection. I tried adding
