    Smile Command line/menu based equivalent to Network Manger?

    Hey all,
    Im looking for an easy to use cli based program for finding/selecting wireless networks etc.

    Any suggestions?


    For example, to check my mail I am using Alpine. I like this because it is easy to use, menu driven, yet allows work to be done with no gui. I am basically looking for a program like this but for network management

    Thanks in advance!

    The cli equivalent of network manager for the wireless is wpa_supplicant.
    A gui alternative is wicd.Go check them out.
