Updated with neststat routing info. One thing that is surpising is my routing tables are just the way before I switched to wlan0 from fxp0. There is no mention of wlan0 interface there.

I have updated my question, because I do not want to clutter my question with a lot of information.

@kenorb, many thanks for your suggestions. I think we are close to resolutions. I changed my encryption from WEP to WPA-PSK and I used SYNCDHCP instead of DHCP in my /etc/rc.conf. Now, I get a valid DHCP response and an IP. However, I cannot connect to internet. And you were right about arping. I do get valid response from the router by arping. I was using a wrong ip address for arping. Sorry for that.

@Spiff, you are right. It's a 40-bit (10 digit hex) key. My key is correct, just to reaffirm.
