My prism2 also works using:

1. edit /usr/local/bin/ to remove the last line, the pump -i

2. /usr/local/bin/ wlan0  11  essid  key_code_in_colon_pairs

Then use the necardconf.lua GUI.
Set device as wlan0 and select and enter static IP, and finally the nameserver.

Thanks for the help guys.

I ran through everything again, and the only thing (that I'm aware of) that I did differently was- I added the "ip" argument to

ifconfig wlan0 ip

Previously, I had "ifconfig wlan0".  I didn't realize that "ip" was a required argument- could almost swear I've seen it ommited before.

So, its working now, thanks for the replies.  DSL is great and I've used it for years, so it is probably a little late but I just donated some $$.  Sometimes you hear a phrase, "Freedom isn't free."  Well, "Open software isn't free, either."  The people working on open source stuff are usually high caliber guys who are presumably giving up income by volunteering.  So it is free to you but it is costing someone.  Sorry to go off track but it is good to be reminded of this once in a while  :)
