Because you are connecting to an access point, I would expect
Mode=Managed. If you are using WEP with a shared key, I would also
expect to find a key-wlan0 file with the encryption key. You might
also need SECURITYMODE=restricted in ifcfg-wlan0. I know that my
access point will not respond to DHCP requests if I do not have the
security mode set to restricted.
