The wiki says that I can use the gui in the settings-application to even
connect to a wpa2 protected network. Now I tried that with an open network
and it works. (except for rerouting, which I still have to do using terminal.
It also thinks it failed even when it succeeded.) But I was never able to
connect to my protected network, probably because I type in the PSK wrong.
Isn't there a way to preload the neo with the key via ssh in a config file?
Because having to type it is really a pain in the rear. Also I have noticed
the gui doesn't store the password, but maybe it's because it thinks the
I want to use the gui because it otherwise seems to interfere with mofi or
lint (or the ifup, wpa_supplicant). It is also the nearest to usable tool to
connect to a network. The only things I would like to see improved are:
-a config, or config files for each AP
-reroute through eth0
-know when it is connected and don't say it failed when it succeeded.
In a further stadium 802.1x would be nice.
