Can only connect to networks with passwords
This is how I connect to a secured network:
This works and I am connected
# ip link set wlan0 up
# wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c <(wpa_passphrase "essid" password)
#dhcpcd -A wlan0
When I try to connect to a network that does not require a password I execute
I get a timed out response every time.
#ip link set waln0 down
#ip link set wlan0 up
#iwconfig wlan0 "MyEssid"
I have read and tried a few other things but can't seem to figure it out.
I used to use ifconfig but did not install network management tools with this install, I recall reading somewhere it is better to not install them.
Should I install network management tools or is there a way to do this with wpa_supplicant?
