Default ipw0

ok, i have thoroughly read ipw(4),ifconfig(8) and hostname.if(5). I then created an /etc/hostname.ipw0 file and populated it with the following -
dhcp NONE NONE NONE nwkey 0x********** chan 11. Upon reboot dhcp tries to secure and address but eventually times out. ifconfig does show my wireless nic, but i am not certain if i have to agree to the firmware in some fashion or another before it will bring it up???? even after reading the manpage for ifconfig (8) not certain on how to bring the nic up manually. my tail is between my legs guys. just point me in the right direction and i should be able to find my way.

thanks again
