how to scan wireless networks and connenct to the in suse
 
hi
I am so new in linux. I spent lots of time to make my wireless card intel 3945ABG work in suse 10.2.
at last, it is working. now, I can scan wireless networks with:
# iwconfig eth1 scan

but now I do not know how to connect to the wireless networks.
PLZ, introduce me a software for scanning and connecting to wireless networks.
I do not like to work with command line.

Hi, the best scanning tool is Kismet, a nice command line utility. For a GUI connection, I suggest either wicd or Networkmanager. If you want to connect using the command line, iwconfig is your friend.
Code:

iwconfig eth1 essid <SSID>
iwconfig eth1 key <hex WEP key>
ifconfig eth1 up
dhcpcd eth1
