Re: Fwd: Re: Going wireless
I think that I missed the begining of this thread, but if you know that
name ( essid ) of the network you want to connect to, then it is just:
iwconfig wlan0 essid Network_Name
If you want to try and connect to the strongest signal, then:
iwconfig wlan0 essid any
After connecting to the network, you will need to get an IP, something
