I just got Mepis installed on my primary HDD, I got my wireless usb device drivers loaded with ndiswrapper. Now I need to configure it, and I don't quite know what to do. With KNOPPIX it was real easy, it asked for the ESSID and I provided it, same for everything else. So how do I do that with this?
read up about iwconfig. But the basic of it is to enter the following commands into the terminal as root:
iwconfig interface_name essid my_essid
iwconfig interface_name key xxxxxxxxxxxxx <-- replace with WEP key in hexadecimal format
Ok I figured that out but now how do I do a DHCP broadcast or whatever?
Try where wlan0 is the name of your card.
I got it last night, seems every time I post something here (at least about my wireless thing) I find it on another site. I used pump -i wlan0 and it worked :).
