    ifconfig -a comes back with eth0, lo, wlan0, and wmaster0-00

    Sorry about the wrong section. I have been searching most of the day and have not been able to find how to fix this permanently.

    Putting in

    /etc/init.d/wicd start

    will get my wired ethernet working and

    modprobe ath5k
    sudo ip link set wlan0 up
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid any

    will start wireless. Then when I reboot I am not connected.

    I don't mind putting all of that in, but it would be nice if it automatically connected on start up.

    There's a thread about starting these on boot, or you can always google information about rc.d.
