Re: How to use password-protected wireless networks?

Running testing on a wireless equipped laptop, I can usually get on to any
available networks using some combination of ifupdown, ifplugd, whereami,
resolvconf, kwifimanager etc.
One situation which has stumped me, however, is when the network requires a
password (which I have, of course, been given!): how do I enter the password?
Some networks simply redirect your browser to a login page; no problem there.
And I'm not talking about encryption. It's the ones for which my Mac-using
colleagues simply enter the password into a little dialog that pops up
automatically when the network needs one.
How does the Debian user do it?
P.S. Please CC me.
take a look at iwconfig. to enter the key:
iwconfig eth0 key 1234567890ABCDEF
There may be an applet that does the same thing, but this is the command
line that I use.
