wifi install hook up not working....


I just dl this ver 10, install went fine except for when it is establishing a wifi connection. I am using a key off no pass word needed public wifi so when it is asking for a passphrase I do not have one so if fails. I tried bringing it up in the xorg desktop but I found some apps missing hdclient
I got as far as bring up the NIC I already know the ssid and pass key is off

I'm in slack and found this , I've used it to get hookup to the net before, if you got ifconfig it should work in your distro yes???
I just need to change it to wol1 or was it wlo1 ?
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#device name
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
#list providers
#sudo  iwlist wlan0 scan
#set a provider to the device
sudo iwconfig wlan0  essid "Google Starbucks" key "off"
but I do not think firefox is even in that install. it was the full iso so I thought their'd be more then what I seen when starting x.

I need a web browser pref, Firefox to get logged in through the web page the pops up, that is the only security and now Firefox gives a button to use to get to it more easily.

You right, setting up the wireless without passkey is not working in the installer.
You need to install via a ready-to-use NuTyX ISO located at:

https://tronyx-world.tech/nutyx/?C=M;O=D
or
http://linuxtracker.org/index.php?pa...ory=0&active=1

By the way all thoses ISOS are installable directly from the LIVE mode. ( I forgot to mentionned it in the news).

You will be then able to configure your open wifi via the networkmanager applet
At the installation, when it ask for a passkey, enter anything, it will be overwritten by your own networkmanager applet configuration anyway

cool you have torrents as well, i'll seed the one I download from it for while.

Quick Question, as I am going to try and install WMaker on it as soon as I get the needed wifi established. Is there any cliff falls I need to be worrying about?

thanks,

I do have to ask what was the reasoning behind hard coding it to use the wlo1 naming scym, as I got it to the point of reestablishing a wpa_supplican.conf but then I ran into issues due to links to some file it was attached to. ( I do not remember the exact messages, I was getting, only that it was preventing me from continuing to establish my wifi)


making the how to start wifi on Linux obsolete with all of the information online on how to do that using the simple wpa_supplicant or the other methods now obsolete when trying to use them.

this situation is a perfect example.
