Wlan & WEP in menus

Postby JohnH on Fri Jan 05, 2007 7:56 am

G'day Minties,

kwlan for WLAN with WEP/WPA in Knoppix menu; added VLAN configurator
(Distro Watch 5-12-2007)

Is this possible for Mint? It would be very handy for the inexperienced I should think.

Regards
John

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

mint already has something similar which manages both wired and wireless networks. I found it quite easy to use, if it does not work for you please post again and we will try to get to the bottom of why it does not work

Thanks for your reply Alephcat,

My card worked out of the box (HP dv2000 laptop) and there are no instructions on how to set up WEP (or better security) that I see. It is probably very simple, but when I tried doing this sometime last year my network connection wouldn't work. So I disabled the encryption. Is there a guide to setting up security under linux somewhere, as I use my laptop 'on the road' and I worry about snoops.

Regards
John
