    Creating a wireless connection

    Ok... if I know ssid default gateway etc... is there a command I can use to set these and create a wireless network to an accsess point?
    Did someone piss in the gene pool?

    sorry about the stupid and vauge question...

    ok...
    im trying to set up a connection from my wireless car to my accsess point. I used
    Code:
    iwconfig ap (mac address of accsess point)
    ah
    Code:
    IWCONFIG
    shows some info...
    IEE002.11b ESSID '(accsess pont name)'
    it shows it mac address and link quality as 100/100 also a signal level

    so I thought this would mean there was a connection? but no... maybe there is a connection to the accsess point and not the internet?

    Any help would be great.

    Never mind I got it...

    Looked around the manual

    when I used the pump command nothing worked

    I used pump -i wlan0
    and hey presto internet!
