Quick tips on configuring a static IP wireless bridge

If you're like me then you don't like to run wires all over the house to connect your home network.  It is often easier to simply use wireless throughout most of the home.  That is, until you want to connect devices that don't have wireless capabilities.  In my case, I have a desktop computer which does not have a wireless card.  Instead of buying a wireless card for the desktop, I decided to configure an old access point to work as a wireless bridge instead.

Wireless trouble in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid with Ralink RT2860 chipset

Once again I am having trouble with the Ralink RT2860 chipset wireless card under Ubuntu. I have had an issue with this NIC since 9.04! The problem has been that the card would not connect to wireless networks and would keep asking for a password even though it had already been entered. The fix for 9.04 and 9.10, for me, is described in this forum post.
