View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wirless Easy Question!

June 4th, 2008, 12:09 AM
If I can get Wireless, do I need to have the information for the Router? Say I was at McDonalds or a Library, would I need the Router information, or does it automatically set up like in Windows Vista, which I had previously? Please help me out here!

Well, you can scan for networks. And then connect to it.

It doesn't autoconnect like Vista, but it will after you connect to that network once.

I don't think you are supposed to, the only thing you would need is the password.
But in the wireless world, anything could happen. Like I can't hook up with my own router under XP, and have to steal my neighbour's. But somehow under Hardy, I can connect to my router just fine.
Go figure...
