man ifconfig

For example my wlan card is /dev/acx0 and I use:

        ifconfig acx0 inet 192.168.1.4 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid *** wepmode on 
wepkey *** up

Defaultrouter is the Access Point (AP) 192.168.1.1:

        route add default 192.168.1.1


Add a namesever to /etc/resolv.conf:

        nameserver IP_ADDRESS


If it works, make your configuration permanent using

        /stand/sysinstall -> Configure -> Networking -> Interfaces

or editing /etc/rc.conf directly.


Good luck, Mark Weinem
