    Default How to connect to WPA WLAN ?

    how can I connect to a WPA-PSK network (AP)?
    no GUI tools, and I googles like crazy, but did not manage to connect using iwconfig, the iwconfig wlan0 enc seems to never work.

    does anyone have a complete example ?

    please work on your searching skills.
    try using wicd
    for connections and GUI tools you could start "wicd Network Manager"
    # /etc/init.d/wicd start
    then use wicd-client to configure your wireless interface(s) look under the [Internet] menu
    is from thread http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...backtrack.html

    Thanks for the GUI way, the link you provided, like whatever I did(or not) find, does not contain WPA-related info.

    Basic networking 101 and nothing to do with BackTrack. Op, I suggest you start here and get an idea of how things work in Linux from a CLI perspective: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=571188

    Also, follow iproute's suggestion and do search harder as these forums and google have EVERY answer that you are seeking.
