Forgot how I set up a specific ESSID


Hi, I have reinstalled gentoo on my laptop and I forgot how I specified my network to connect to a specific ESSID during start up. One of my neighbors has an open network and I seem to connect automatically to it during startup. I had it configured correctly before but since I have reinstalled, I can't recall (or find) how I did it. I believe it was a modules=() statement in my /etc/conf.d/net file but I'm not sure. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

/etc/conf.d/net
Code:
config_wlan0=( "192.168.1.123 netmask 255.255.255.0 brd 192.168.1.255" )
routes_wlan0=( "default gw 192.168.1.1")
Edit: Added /etc/conf.d/net

Yes....Thats it, Thanks...I scoured the gentoo-wiki but forgot about the main site. My mind is a bit burned out from spending an hour trying to get the interface up during boot (I forgot the "=" on config_wlan=) Thanks
