Connecting to a Wireless LAN with Linux, Part 2 - page 3
Getting OnlineOn Debian you can configure all Ethernet interfaces in the /etc/network/interfaces file. This is an example for a static IP on a PCI wireless adapter. Use the "auto eth1" line only for PCI cards, to start them at boot. Don't use it for PCMCIA:
auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address 192.168.1.100 network 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 wireless_essid Office wireless_mode Managed wireless_key 5e5d5e66255b75464a492b4b42
wireless_" settings come from the
iwconfig command options; you may use any iwconfig option except
nick, in this format:
wireless_[command] [value]. See
man iwconfig for a complete list.
auto eth1 iface eth1 inet dhcp
Be sure to list your Ethernet devices in order: lo, eth0, eth1, and so forth. They will be started in the order listed.
