My wireless is set up using ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant. I've got my home wireless network and my schools wireless network in my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, but I'm having trouble when I need to associate with an open wireless network after I have booted up. I do:
~ # ifconfig wlan0 up
~ # iwconfig wlan0 essid "ESSID"
This does not successfully associate with the open wireless network. What am I missing?
Also, what are my options for VPN on the console?
