The wireless connection we have at work drops out on a number of occasions throughout the day and thus requires me to reactivate via:
I find the whole thing time consuming and annoying.
Could i create a shell script with user privileges whereby i would just click on a link to reconnect/ repair my connection and also for automatic connection when it drops. This would be really useful.
This is how i set up my rt73 usb adapter in which i compile myself from http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Downloads
Also another question that has been bugging me for a long time is how to connect using dhcp
in the terminal. For a static address i use the following:
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwlist wlan0 scan
iwconfig wlan0 ap any
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.102 netmask 255.255.255.0
echo nameserver 192.168.1.1 > /etc/resolv.conf
echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 >> /etc/resolv.conf
echo nameserver 188.8.131.52 >> /etc/resolv.conf
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
