wow..... doing that, along with matthew's changes to  
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 brings up eth1 !

what i don't understand is that i have never had to input my network
SSID or WEP key, and this is supposed to be a secure wireless router. i
know in Windows it would not function without giving the security
settings. does this mean WEP is not secure for Linux machines?

elated AND confused.......
