I have tried the web interface, the command line wifisetup command as well as commandline options. I have even tried to manually configure the network and wireless files manually in /etc/config.
But at the moment it still looks like I have to purchase special hardware to get this working as nothing I own will connect the with the device.
I have tried WEP, WPA, WPA2PSK with all the passwords simple as well as clear simple SSID's. My next step is to try open connections I suppose but that is not a real solution to get a device connection to the network, it is more of a last ditch effort.
