Typically I use the network config gui that came with Ubuntu, but, I have
used iwconfig as well.

Thing is, this laptop did connect, with WEP, before I did the piecemeal
install of UbuntuStudio and -rt (though I don't see why adding say JACK or
Ardour would effect the network). It was also after that update that I
first used the wired connection.

I suppose, during one of the many sessions of following "guides" from the
web forums I could have changed the WEP key, or frequency, or something. My
other laptop with wifi, WinXP, has worked all along.

So, maybe I don't know the proper way to switch back and forth between
wired and wifi? But, whether I boot without the cable or unplug after boot,
the wifi does not connect. Other than the wifi switch, is there something I
need to do when I unplug the cable to make it switch over to wifi?
