trying to connect to wifi with iwconfig, but cannot set key...
I have read the docs, and did the following
lets assume my essid is ABC-WIFI
and that my ASCII password is 1234PASS
sudo iwconfig eth1 mode managed
sudo iwconfig eth1 essid “ABC-WIFI”
sudo iwconfig eth1 key s:1234PASS
My problem is that it fails here, when setting the key...
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.
I have checked that eth1 is indeed my wireless interface, I checked that through iwlist.
Soooo... what should I do now??
iwconfig works with wireless devices. Eth1 - is a wired device.
What is output of:
The output of iwconfig is:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated
Link Quality:4 Signal level:194 Noise level:170
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:89 invalid misc:0
vboxnet0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 can be a wireless interface, not wired, as seems to be your case.
I have no experience of VMs, but think that you may have to grant, or give privileges to, your virtual machine access to real hardware.
