Can you please copy & paste the full output of the command (including the command itself, that generates that error).

Without more details, I am guessing your failed command includes the "set" operation, and that "set" is not supported by your hardware.

Have you tried connecting using the GUI Network Manager icon? (As opposed to from the Terminal.)
