Problem using netcfg w/ wireless and static ip [SOLVED]

I've been trying to get this to work for a couple days now and I'm going crazy.  I'm trying to use netcfg to setup my wireless interface with a static ip address, but for some reason it's not working.  Here's the profile:

CONNECTION="wireless"
INTERFACE=wlan0
SCAN="yes"
SECURITY="wep"
ESSID="homenet"
KEY="XXXXXXXXXX"
IP="static"
IPOPTS="192.168.1.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255"
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
DNS1=192.168.1.1

When I run "netcfg wireless" I get:

SIOCADDRT: File exists
- Adding gateway 192.168.1.1 failed

I can use a different netcfg wireless profile set for dhcp jsut fine.  I can also set everything manually using iwconfig, ifconfig, route, etc... without problems.

Is there something wrong in my profile? Or is this possibly a bug in netcfg? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Try changing IPOPTS to IFOPTS   smile

Good luck!
