    WPA Config files.


    I'm having some problems with my parents wireless network, I'm not able to connect. I know that the wireless router uses a WPA passphrase.

    So searching on google I read that I need to install wpa_supplicant form my linux laptop (which I did) and that I have to configure a wpa_supplicant.conf file. But I haven't been able to find this one... I've check /etc/ and its not there...

    should I create it? (I would have tried, but I haven't been at my parents house for a week or so, I will love to have internet there next time I go over).

    You will have to create a wpa_supplicant.conf file. There are some examples in the /usr/share/doc/wpa_supplicant folder. Place the file in the /etc/wpa_supplicant folder.

    These commands will give you some info too.
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -h
    man wpa_supplicant
