View Full Version : WPA Supplicant

October 4th, 2006, 02:43 AM

I configured my dapper for wifi using ndiswrapper. Daily i work on 2 wireless networks, a secure one and an unsecure one.

I used the wpa_supplicant.conf to start wpa services at start up and it has my secure network entry.

Now if am on the secure wireless network and i want to move to a unsecure network am not able to do so without deleting the wpa_supplicant.conf and restarting the machine. the other way around i had to create the wpa_supplicant.conf and restart.

What is the way to switch from a secure network to an unsecure network or vice versa without restarting?

Best way is to try an applet called NetworkManager which you find in the repositories. I let's you connect to wireless networks "on the fly".
