It installs just fine from the repository but all the howto's ive read on how to set it up says edit a /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file and I dont have that conf file nowhere. And im not sure what else to do.
Thanks for any help.
Unfortunately, editing includes *creating* the file from scratch. Probably the simplest way to create a working conf file is to run the following command.
wpa_passphrase yourssid yourpassword > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
For example, if your ssid was george and your password was br549, you would enter the following:
wpa_passphrase george br549 > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
