Since I need various wifi configurations on my laptop, I use startup scripts 
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d.  They are turned off (that is, they don't end in 
'.sh') so that I can choose the configuration manually after bootup.

The text to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off is below.  It assumes that the 
laptop is a client to an access point that uses WEP.  Replace the ssidname 
and wepkey in the start section.  Change 'wi0' to the interface device, if 
needed.  If you want it to start at bootup, rename the file without the 

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off
# Configure wireless interface using DHCP

case $1 in 
        ifconfig wi0 ssid "ssidname" authmode "shared" nwkey 0xaaaaaaaaaa
        dhclient wi0
        echo ' wi0'
        kill `cat /var/run/dhclient.pid`
        ifconfig wi0 remove
        echo ' wi0 removed'
        ifconfig wi0
        echo 'usage: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off [start|stop|status]'
