Re: [orca-list] Connecting to a wireless network using Orca

Hi all, wifi-radar works really well also when wanting to list ssid's that you can connect to in a given location. You have to have sysadmin stuff set up with Orca, but if you do, it works beautifully.

as root do:
  iwlist wlan0 scan

Or to list only the found SSIDs:

  iwlist wlan0 scan | grep ESSID

If an access point uses an unencrypted connection (for example a
hot-spot), the connection will be established automatically.



Btw: no need to send list mails also to me directly, I'm reading the
mailinglist. :-)
And yes, the list configuration is right, but some mailers unfortunately
lack a reply-to-list feature.
