Installing USB wlan adapter


I downloaded a driver for my wireless USB adapter. I copied the files to the correct directory (the readme specified it). How do I use the driver/hardware for internet access?
Thanks in advance,

Usually you use iwlist scan to find accesspoints and iwconfig to config your wlan0...

iwconfig wlan0

iwconfig wlan0 ap(ap means accesspoint) <ap> that should connect you

Try iwlist wlan0 up


if this doesnt work: http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...ess_Networking
