    Ageing commands?

    I remember two years ago, when I issued commands:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid ACCESPOINT_NAME and
    i could connect to the internet opening the browser after them, and everything worked.
    Today, I've tried the same thing on Jaunty, but I simply couldn't get ip address.
    Are these commands deprecated?
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
    Linux Usert#430188

    I am running a Jaunty version of mint xfce 4.6 and my wireless connection would drop in and out every few seconds in jaunty with the right module install so I did a

    sudo ifconfig eth1 ifup

    sudo dhcpcd eth1

    That was when terminal informed me that dhcpcd was not installed in jaunty so I did a

    sudo apt-get install dhcpcd
    and rebooted and everything started working correctly. I don't know for sure if that will get you going but it worked for me. I use wicd to connect instead of Network Manager.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    As far as I know, dhclient is still the default on Ubuntu. Of course, if you're connecting to an encrypted network, that wouldn't work. You can use iwconfig with WEP networks, but not WPA/WPA2 networks.
