It would be good to place a further example for encrypting.

  1. /etc/conf.d/wireless

wlan_wlan0="wlan0 essid MyEssid"

  1. wlan_wlan0="wlan0 essid MyEssid key 625341627"
  2. wlan_wlan0="wlan0 essid MyEssid key s:masterpassword"

If you have eth0 as wireless card, you replace wlan0 with eth0

wlan_et0="eth0 essid MyEssid key s:masterpassword""

I added the section in ndiswrapper about no internet -- this also could be adapted for other sections, or just generalized at the beginning. --Majikstreet 13:30, 15 September 2006 (PDT)

I made some changes to the rt2500 driver section, since the newer driver rt2500pci works with wpa supplicant. Somebody could probably clean that section up, and write it better, but I don't really think I know enough to be qualified.

i added a link to the autowifi page under the 3rd party tools. Black Mage

Does anybody else besides me think that it would be helpful to mention modprobe -l to get a list of loaded modules/drivers and that ath9k is already included in the kernel at the beginning of First steps or Drivers and Firmware section? In my case (I have a Thinkpad x61) I didn't have to install any additional drivers, so I could proceed immediately to Manual setup and everything worked perfectly. --Bhobbit 01:03, 7 June 2009 (EDT)

Isn't wlan-ng deprecated now? --Svenstaro 20:11, 14 February 2010 (EST)

I added a note saying that internal wifi cards in laptops can be usb devices as I just spent a few hours wondering why mine didn't show up under lspci. PIMPinator 23:54, 17 August 2010 (EDT)

iwl3945, iwl4965 and iwl5000-series - Firmware (Microcode)

I think the Firmware files have moved into the package linux-firmware, so theres no need for these lines any more. If I'm wrong please revert my change.
