I just gave up  and and installed eeeUbuntu and removed Gnome and 
installed KDE, RaLink Wireless works fine in gnome but not KDE,  
kdenetwork won't let me enter a WEP key, If I check "Use Wireless 
Security" and click on "Expert setting" button it won't go any further 
to allow me to enter a WEP key.
