Not really a stupid question... I think the whole WLAN
system lacks a bit of maturation in the Linux (Debian?)
world, and there are indeed settings all over the place.
Also, I have a suspicion that Debian does things in a
different way than other distributions, rendering lots of
documentation slightly wrong.
Apparently, encryption keys are manipulated with
iwconfig(8), and most iwconfig parameters I have for my card
are defined in /etc/network/interfaces, preceded with
"wireless_". So if I were you, I'd try to add my key for the
appropriate interface as:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
I haven't tried encryption at all yet, so this message is
given to you free of charge and free of warranty, including
that any of it is even remotely true :-)
Do let us know if that works tho!
