network password?

Postby taylor » Mon Jun 04, 2007 4:30 pm

I have linuxmint bianca on a linuxuser coverdisk which I am trying to connect to my belkin 54g wireless. Now on the wifi setup bit there is a box to enter my ssid , should I enter "belkin 54g" ? Also there is a box to enter my NETWORK PASSWORD. dont have a clue what a network password is !!

a linuxuser coverdisk
What's that?
The SSID or ESSID is the name the accesspoint uses to identify itself and the network password (this is really an inadequate description, but...) is the passphrase used to start WEP or WPA authentication

husse I was referring to issue 72 of linuxuser and developer magazine (http://www.linuxuser.co.uk} which had linux bianca 2.2 mounted on a coverdisk. This is what I am trying to configure to my belkin wireless. Thanks for clearing up those little niggles for me.
