i am a newbie, so my problem might have an *obvious* solution-- i don't

i just installed driverloader...everything went fine, my linksys wpc11 v4 is
recognized, even the 'link' light on the card turned on, but still i am
unable to get an internet connection. is there an extra step i am
overlooking? anyway, here some output. the 'ifup wlan0' seems most
interesting to me....
