How can I connect to my wireless network via the command line? Here's the backstory: Firstly, mintppc 9 works perfectly on my ibook g4 1.42ghz 14". Lately I've been experimenting with using it as a webserver, just for fun, and that has gone extremely well too, thanks to all the great advice found online. Now, some of that advice says that a server should not have a gui desktop running, to conserve resources, and introduced me to the subject of runlevels. After some more research here's what I did:
sudo update-rc.d gdm disable 2
This changed the S in the name of the gdm script to K in /etc/rc2.d/ and allowed me to boot without the graphical environment. Great, becoming a little less of a newb... The problem is that my machine, now in this customized runlevel 2, no longer automatically connects to my wireless network the way it does when I boot into the default desktop environment. Which leads to my question above: How can I connect to my wireless network via the command line? Or, is there a way to put whatever script that takes care of this into the /etc/rc2.d/ directory? If anyone can help with either or both
of these questions I would appreciate it greatly.
