Wifi key setup from command line - fedora 9


I have a fedora (live) which I would like to login to my wireless network upon bootup.

My wifi network is WPA-TKIP protected. What command would I use to make fedora login to the wifi network using my key?

Thanks

I use wireless_tools, eg:
iwconfig
iwlist
each one has its own man page.

If your wireless device is wlan0, the typical drill would be:
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid yourapname key yourkey
dhcpcd wlan0

I use this for WEP--check the iwconfig man page for the WPA details.
