It seems to be working now.  I have other problems now, though ...

I see almost everything you say but it never associates with my access
point.  I've verified multiple times that the WEP key is correct but I

SoftMAC: cannot associate without being authenticated, requested


SoftMAC:  Authentication timed out with <access point MAC>

I guess I'll file a bug ... okay:
