GNU/Linux, linux-ng-wlan (Linksys WUSB11 v2.5) and University of Toronto

This is a quick rundown of how to use linux-ng-wlan drivers and get 
connected to the UofT wireless network. 

Download from:

ftp://ftp.linux-wlan.org/pub/linux-wlan-ng/

and download the file linux-wlan-ng-0.1.14-pre3.tar.gz

Gunzip, extract the tar and compile as directed (meaning read the README).

Use this configuration file to get you up and running.

wlan.conf

The points of interest are the settings for the following:
dot11PrivacyInvoked=true 	#turn on wep
PRIV_KEY128=true		#use wep 128
dot11WEPDefaultKey0=55:54:6f:72:6f:6e:74:6f:31:68:6f:6d:65 #UofT 128 bit key
IS_ADHOC=n
DesiredSSID="UTORwin"		#SSID of UofT network. Why win? I'm not sure...

Then away you go...
