please help me understand wpa settings
I'm trying to set up wpa wireless, but I guess I'm missing some basics.
In Wisdows Vista, I simply pasted the 63 ascii char password into the wireless setting windows, and it works.
I know, unix is different.
Now, if I paste the password into hostname.if it does not work, if I try to convert it to hexadecimal with wpa-psk it does not do it, I guess because there are all sorts of characters in the password (but then, why are punctuation marks not allowed?). If I try to use a password with only letters it gives me the hexadecimal, but then it does not work either (of course I've put the new password into my router.
What am I doing wrong?
My actual hostname.iwn0 looks like this (this time with the password converted to hex:
inet 192.168.1.XXX nwid my-ssid wpa wpapsk my-ssid 0xalotofnumbers
