View Full Version : [ubuntu] setup ethernet connection help

Following the sticky "How To: Manual Network Configuration without the need for Network Manager", my computer didn't respond to

sudo iwconfig <interface> essid "ESSID_IN_QUOTES"
in a good manner. the response was

iwconfig: unknown command "ESSID_IN_QUOTES"
any commands past this point don't work either.
any pointers?

did you replace "ESSID_IN_QUOTES" with an ESSID name?? first type iwconfig in your terminal.. and you should see an ESSID name.. use that ESSID name instead of ESSID_IN_QUOTES
