    iwconfig prints out my access point with my unique name. So I know
    its found the access point because I never entered in the name.

    However /proc/net/wireless is empty

    My wireless access point says I'm connected.

    I've assigned an IP address "ifconfig wlan0"

    However I can't ping/reach my access point ( My routing
    table says I have a route: wlan0

    Any ideas?

    This is a Belkin 802.11b PCI card. Probably a harboring of bad things
    to come when I had to manually hack the PCI bus address into the
    device driver source code...

    You're using the linux-wlan-ng drivers. Last time I looked, they didn't
    support the Linux Wireless Extentions /proc/net/wireless entry.
    Check with the website/documentation.
