Connecting to wireless internet
I've recently moved from Slack 12.2, to Slack 14.
I used to connect to my wireless router by editing two config files:
In Slack 12.2, I could input the information for my router (ssid, psk etc) into the supplicant file. In Slackware 14, the wpa_supplicant file seems to have changed. It now shows this:
Can anyone can advise, or direct me to an updated document on connecting to a wireless router in Slackware 14?
*edit* I'd prefer to connect through config files and not Network Manager, as the nm-applet gives me errors.
After 4 months of having to use Windows on a laptop, I am writing this reply on my Slackware 14 desktop.
Im home :)
I run network manager on 2 laptops (slackware 32 and 64) without errors. You may want to investigate the cause of nm-applet errors.
For me, this is much handier when travelling and thus needing to access wifi in hotels and various coffee shops "on the fly".
Another usefull provided tool is located in [slackware dvd]/extra/wicd which is rock solid but missing some advanced features of network manager.
