Default Linksys WMP54G Wireles Adaptor Wont Work; Or I Don't Know How To Know Solved

This wifi issue is now solved via another reply
clueing me in on how to properly enter DNS info
specifically the search domain. Thanks David Vencent
for that.
Adding gateway.2wire.net alias to the search domain
entry solved the no connection issue for this card. I
was on line after doing an "ifdown wlan0" and ifup
wlan0.
Had hoped that Christopher Copeland would have come
back to this thread so maybe to learn something about
networking, but maybe he hasn't seen it yet.
Thanks to everyone on the list who offered help on
this connection issue.
