You will need wpa_supplicant to finish the connection.

This site should get you going.

I do not know why the gui tools are having a problem.
This has been forwarded to the devs.

After transposing essid and wlan0, which didn't work so I tried the way you said.  The only difference:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"qwest5177"
Still no connection.  And somewhere it is supposed to ask for the pass phrase.

I screwed that up:

iwconfig wlan0 essid "AP Name"

Follow the notes.

See if that gets it going.

Thanks for your reply, Bigpaws.
I moved the device to another port and see that I made a couple of mistakes - couldn't read my own writing!

mmmm issues with printing (which I always seem to get) now using a samsung colour laser printer C430 which should work perfectly, and indeed does on mint....

It does not appear that the essid is set.
As root:

Try ifconfig to test if the interface is up more than likely wlan0
but there are other names it could be.

You can try below.

iwconfig essid "AP Name"

NOTE: remove the quotes and replace  AP Name with the essid.

Then try iwconfig and test.

If that works then set the key

iwconfig wlan0 enc <key>

NOTE: wlan0 should be replaced with the interface name and key should remove <> and replace key with the key

Used the network settings to set the ssid to my router.  Left the other spaces blank.  No connection!

This is happening in both 7.1 and 7.2b1.1.  What do I do now?

Installed VL7.2B1.1 on my Dell GX280 (32 bit)
The gui installer still doesn't like my flat screen monitor!
Text install with XFCE4 and LILO Boot loader without a hitch.
Booted to Root and User was very good.

Thanks, guys.  This is awesome!

PS:  Screensaver insists that it is really old!
