    Question Connecting to the internet - help please /interfaces configuration

    I have installed the drivers I need but I cant configure the /interfaces file correctly I have this code:

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    pre-up ifconfig wlan0 up
    pre-up iwconfig wlan0 essid ssidname
    pre-up iwpriv wlan0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK
    pre-up iwpriv wlan0 set WPAPSK=********
    pre-up iwpriv wlan0 set EncrpType=TKIP
    auto wlan0

    however I am using WEP with a dynamic ip address, how do I ammend this to make it work?

    Thank you

    Gary
