    Default A different way

    I'm pretty new to wireless, I've only been using it for a month now. So maybe I'm way off here, but I've been using the command dhclient wlan0 instead of dhcpcd wlan0.

    I hope this helps.

    I haven't made 15 posts yet so it doesn't let me post the website I used. just search for Wireless networking on linuxquestions.

    I used your syntax to try and connect to my AP with a key that was ASCII.
    ( iwconfig wlan0 essid hackme key s: bella )

    and it reports back "error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : invalid argument "s:".

    any idea as to why this may be?

    Take the space out between 's:' and the 'passphrase' eg

    key s:bella
