This is overkill most of the time. This is what my system does when it
udev sees ath0. This can probably be easily incorperated into the
bootscripts, I'll play around with it.

iwconfig ath0 essid Ciccone &&
iwconfig ath0 mode Managed &&
iwconfig ath0 key restricted [wep key here] &&
ip link set ath0 up &&
ip addr add 192.168.0.131/24 broadcast 255.255.255.0 dev ath0 &&
ip route add default via 192.168.0.1 dev ath0
