When I typed in /sbin/iwconfig I get the following.

I read the man page of iwconfig but there wasn’t much I could do. I read about “key/enc” which sort of gave me a hint and thought if I could type something like the below………
/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 key <my key>
^ I thought that if I typed the above in terminal I would get a connection, but no luck, again not sure what I’m doing. You said from the above that I also needed a WEP key for FC4 and that’s what I thought too. But I don’t know how to do that. I’m currently googling on how to setup a network WEP key, I just hope something turns up.
