I tried this and it worked. I guess you just have to have the driver in
the /etc/modules file when you reboot for the name of the interface to
get worked out and all.
Strangely the signal strength is listed as being 3 out of 4 bars now when
I'm only a few feet from the router. Not that it matters, as long as
everything else works. I'll post in a few days to note whether or not
this solves all the problems.
Thank you all.
