WEP encryption password
I have a wireless network in my house and ive been running knoppix just fine with it all set up, but recently i put a WEP encryption password on the network, and i havnt been able to figure out how to enter it for my one computer running linux. My other computers are all running windows and it was easy to put the WEP key in. If anyone knows how i can easily just put the WEP key in to get up on the network i would appreciate it, thanx.
Hmmm.... iwconfig is the way to set it. I'm out of possible answers. You'll have to try googling for your wireless card and knoppix and see if someone else has figured out that's up. I would definitely work on getting some kind of encryption to work. It's too easy to fireup kismet and monitor someone's unencrypted network.
