Yes, I did try that.  I imagine I'm doing something wrong.

In the end, I restored the laptop using the USB upgrade method.  I
never was able to connect to my home network using WPA-PSK.  Several
of us in the Dallas Python group purchased these and I'll talk to them
about it.  It was odd and frustrating, sometimes the network
neighborhood would see my SID, but most of the time it wouldn't.

However, it did turn out that the Wpa.sh script left off the left
bracket, ']', on my SID (perhaps I entered something incorrect).  And
that is why the network.cfg file wasn't being parsed correctly.
