    Default ESSID question

    G'day, Please don't get upset with my question. I have done some research and found no related topic regarding this.

    This is the command to connect to my AP

    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    iwconfig wlan0 essid XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX key XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    dhcpcd wlan0

    What if my ESSID was for eg. "Fedor-Emelianenko-259-145"

    My AP excepts this as an ESSID and shows in Wireless assist as "Fedor-Emelian-259-145" (Unfortunately I cannot connect via WA that's another story and thread) because of the characters etc the shell does not like it at all and prompts invalid etc, etc.
    I tried iwconfig wlan0 bssid XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX key XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    but this didn't rectify the issue

    Have I discovered a great security please advice a way around this

    I can use quotes arount the () chanrachers in the Bash shell? I didn't try that, I didn't think it would work.

    if your essid is

    """""ssomething(-hhjkkkk###"

    quote it like that '"""""ssomething(-hhjkkkk###"'

    use strong quotes allow you to use all chars included " in your essid......

    Haha, I wasn't pissed off. I was laughin! Anyway, I know what you mean.
    I was looking for something earlier but couldn't find it, Then I saw in another thread that Streaker had put down exactly what I was looking for, and I typed it into google and it found it!

    "big breasted british women"
