Also, given the bit rate, I'd say you're using 11b. Have you set your
router to 11g/turbo? Try using 11b/11g "mixed" mode instead.

If the OP can't connect to the AP then I'd suggest that there's not
really a lot of point in this - yet.
Taumo, how are you configuring eth1 (from the network perspective, not
the wireless one)? Do you have a network configuration file, and if so
what is its contents?
Which distribution and version of GNU/Linux you're running?
For example, if it's debian I can give you a canned example that should
"just work". If it's one of the other distros then someone else may well
be able to do the same.
