Welcome to LQ

Do you have Network Manager installed?
if so, the process should be straightforward
This might be helpful

i found a solution is provided for this problem here : http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpo...76&postcount=2

in that he says to ad these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Code:
sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid "yourid"
sbin/iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
sbin/iwconfig wlan0 key open xxxxxxxxxx
sbin/ifconfig wlan0 up
dhclient wlan0
what i don't undestand is :
- "yourid" is what?
- key open xxxxxxx, the xxxxxx should replace with what?
