    Wireless Issue


    I have installed Desktop BSD. My wireless card is flashing as it seems to be recognized. It does this in Ubuntu so its all looking promising but I cannot find anywhere to connect to the internet to input my WEP key?

    I am not use to KDE as I have previously used gnome so I am probably missing something?

    Where do make my wireless connection and input my WEP key?

    I don't use desktopBSD; you will probably want to try their forums for a gui-oriented solution.

    Since it's based on FreeBSD, I can point you to this:
    Wireless Networking

    See '29.3.3.1.4 WEP' for instructions + example, including the caveat on how WEP is easily cracked.
