Well it seems a manual shell command as root ## ifup wlan0    activates the card.
Now I am conected to ping the router and use the internet and Local net.
I am happy with the results.
Just two questions.
 1 .. What do I do to activate ifup wlan0 on Boot? I find no ifcfg-wlan0 script.
       Where is it do I write one, if so an example please 
 2.. What utilities can I use to see Signal power Graphically and to pick up another router on which I am allowed and in Range of as I only entered One ESSID.
 Or is this Automatic?
