How do I connect to WiFi on Debian?
 
Hey guys, I can't find out how to connect to wifi on Debian.

I installed the netinstall.
I'm using a Samsung N110
It couldn't find any wifi networks during installation, wired works fine.
lspci reports that my card is Atheros AR-5001, so it's obviously detecting my card. I just can't figure out how to use it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

easiest thing to do is to either install network-manager or wicd

Thanks for the help mate, I managed to get it working with wicd and wicd-cli

By default, you will have the Wifi and LAN options enabled.
Try to find out from administrative tasks / some settings options.

Thanks

I didn't have a settings interface because I'm using the command line
