You have me confused, now. I have rc.wireless/rc.wireless.conf up and running, and of course am obeying rule no. 1 "f it works, don fix it!"
For those of us with wpa2 security, what is recommended? Run rc.wireless but leave rc.wireless.conf blank?

Don't fiddle with editing those files, just use NetworkManager.

I put the appropriate information in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf...
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=root
network={
   ssid="NOYFB"
   psk=a42424242424424242424242424242424242424242
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
   pairwise=CCMP TKIP
}
I'm sure Alien Bob will tell us the correct way to do it. :-)

Let me point (again) to http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...eless_networks where I explain my reasons. You also should not be running rc.wireless yourself. I is the task of rc.inet1 to invoke the wireless script if it detects a wireless network interface.

For WPA wireless connections, you have to configure the WPA part in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf amd indicate in rc.inet1.conf that you are using WPA and wpa_supplicant for the interface.
