Hi Paul,

Assuming that you have the correct kernel module for your card, and that you 
can address it with ifcinfig and iwconfig, then you will need wpa_supplicant. 
Confusingly, the package is called "wpasupplicant"

The command line options for wpa_supplicant and the syntax of the configuration 
file are well documented. Post again if you have trouble setting it up.
