    First, please post in regular font size, unless you like having the moderators edit your posts.

    To connect without using the graphical NetworkManager, you need to install and set up wpa_supplicant. You first must configure wpa_supplicant to associate the driver module to the network device. For more info on this run these commands.
    Code:
    man wpa_supplicant
    Code:
    wpa_supplicant --help
    You then need to set up the wpa_supplicant.conf file. It is usually found in the /etc or /etc/wpa_supplicant folder. An example file can be found here:
    http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/_attachme....conf.examples
    You wouldn't need the entire file, just something like this:
    Code:
    # Only WPA-PSK is used. Any valid cipher combination is accepted.
    network={
        ssid="example"
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
        group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
        psk=06b4be19da289f475aa46a33cb793029d4ab3db7a23ee92382eb0106c72ac7bb
        priority=2
    }
