Hi there,I got a low key server who is wirelessly connected to the net using an SSID that contains a space. In rc.conf I define the ifconfig line for configuration of my wireless interface upon bootup, but the entire line reads something likeifconfig_ath0=' inet 192.168.0.1 ssid "my network" 'No matter how I tweak the quotes (single then double, other way round, with lots of \\) I never get my interface to configure properly upon bootup and I need to get to the console to fix it up. I thought I knew shell syntax but this is beyond me or manpages...What's the right way to do this?
I think the "right way" is to use wpa_supplicant.conf to define wireless networks. Then in your rc.conf you prefix the NIC configuration with WPA like this:
ifconfig_ath0=="WPA DHCP" This method also allows you to define various wireless networks if needed. Cheers, Erik -- Ph: +34.666334818 web: http://www.locolomo.org
