View Full Version : How to start Wireless card on boot

07-10-2005, 06:09 AM
Ok, first let me say that I am not running Knoppix, I am running Debian 3.1 (Sarge).

I have my wireless card working, however I have to go Root and start it everytime I start the computer. This is how I start it:

Login Root
Ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid "Router SSID"
dhcpcd wlan0

and the wireless is working.
What I am trying to figure out, is how do I get the system to automatically start up the wireless card on startup.
Where do I store the SSID, so it automatically used it by default? and...
How to set up automatic DHCP address retrieval.

Thank You.
