1. What router are you using ( manufacurer - model - essid ) ?
Ans. 2wire Home Portal 1000HW, 2wire905 (supplied by SBC, now AT&T).
2. What Ubuntu 6.06 wifi application program are you using to
configure the Encore adapter?
Ans. I'm using the tools built into Ubuntu 6.06. I am uncertain about
some of the items, so here are most of the details:
Enable this connection: (checked)
Key type: Hexadecimal
WEP key: (ten digits - the key assigned to the router)
IP address, Subnet mask, & Gateway address - blank
Hostname: izzy (the name I gave my computer)
Domain name: 127.0.1.1
DNS Servers: 172.16.0.1
Search Domains: ::1 (I don't know how I arrived at that answer)
Hosts: A list of eight, each w/IP address & alias, including 127.0.1.1,
