Re: help with airport card on g3 powerbook

from mine (working)

# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
#auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
  wireless-key bbaaddeeee
#wireless-key off
#  wireless-essid BONG_LANS_11B

the '#'s are clearly comments. i bounce between AP's so i just do them
on the command line with
ifconfig eth0 essid XXXYYYZZZ
