Trying to connect to wlan
I am using Haiku Alpha 2 as my only OS on my Acer Aspire One.
Networking works right out-of-the-box.
My own wlan is encrypted, but I have a neighbor with a completely unencrypted network.
Unfortunately, he turns off his router when he is not at home, so I can only use Haiku online when the network is up.
I want to connect my Acer to my Nokia.
I have a Nokia telephone with a program called JoikuSpot.
It uses the 3G connection of the phone, and relays it to the wlan, effectively turning the phone into a portable router.
My Linux computer connects to this wireless zone whithout problem.
Haiku does not.
I have tried this command:
setwep /dev/net/atheroswifi/0 JoikuSpot_nokia (JoikuSpot_nokia is the name of the wifi zone)
I run the ommand in Terminal, and it gives no message.
But it doesn't onnect either.
I can see all connected computers on the Nokia's display. Haiku does not connect.
The network app only says "no link".
How an it work only with my neighbor's network, and not with my Nokia?
I did not even have to configure the neighbors network. Haiku found it right after boot.
I wish to travel with this netbook and Nokia. But they must be able to connect first.
