Wink Help on getting WEP-Encrypted Network on OpenBSD

Hey all Daemons

I'm new to this forum but it looks like it's gonna be very helpful.
This semester at university I've studied UNIX and learnt a lot.
Even that way we never saw about wireless settings (cuz my teacher says we'll rarely use it to configure servers, thing I understand, but by now I can't be sitting by the router all day long ).

I have not found a full guide on the internet so I'm asking for help here.

I've used the following commands:

My wifi card is BWI0, whose firmware package I had to install. It does work (or I consider so) because the LED does lit when I ifconfig up.

#ifconfig bwi0 nwid obeid nwkey key

I also have a hostname.bwi0, but it contains the same thing as my wired connection (that does work). I have not found elsewhere what must I put in that file.

Any help will be gladly appreciated

Thanks to all!
