How to configure a wireless interface by hand

Posted on: April 17, 2011


1. If you don’t want to use the classical app as Network Manager, Wicd to set up the wireless interface, you can set up this on:
/etc/network/interfaces (on Debian)

iface wlan0 inet static
address 192.168.1.103
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1
wireless-essid essid_net_name
wireless-key text_passwd

2. Up the wireless interface.. enjoy!

ifup wlan0

  • analialorenzatto: Buzz is just a host name for this example, it doesn't have any relation to the topic. Instead of being "Buzz", could be whatever name.
  • fridelain: >buzz What's the story behind this host name? Actully running buzz, once running buzz and upgraded many times since, or unrelated to debian naming
  • Pratik: Nice, but I would change it to include more directories. Like my .mozilla and .kde4 by using .{config,mozilla,kde4} instead of just .config .
