Re: How To: Manual Network Configuration without the need for Network Manager
Hi, I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit. The internal USB wireless LAN card is Realtek 8187L. By following your great Howto I successfully established a WPA2 connection with my router. However the internal wireless card fail to start automatically during boot and I must press Fn+F10 to trigger on the wireless everytime.
How can I let the wireless card connect to the router automatically right after I press Fn+F10?
The following lines are for connecting to the router manually
Or, if it is possible to start the internal card automatically during boot? In XP the wifi is on automatically during boot. But in Ubuntu it is off unless I press Fn+F10 to trigger it on.
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo dhclient -r wlan0
sudo wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
sudo dhclient wlan0
