command-line linux wireless toolkit
This tool is a tiny wrapper around the
wpa_supplicant commands to
make wireless networking from the command line simple and pleasant.
wit Automatically connect to an accessible network, launching wpa_supplicant as necessary. win connect ESSID Connect to a particular ESSID. If ESSID is surrounded in (//)s, connect to the first matching result. wit list List all wireless signals. wit search TERMS... Search the known network list by SSID, printing the SSID and password. If TERMS is empty, print all the SSIDs. If TERMS is guarded in //s, treat the search as a regex. wit add SSID Add a preferred open network. wit add SSID PASSPHRASE Add a WPA network with a PASSPHRASE.
The main thing you will need to do is turn off whatever horrible default networking stack is already running.
# update-rc.d network-manager remove # service network-manager stop
Now to import all your existing passphrases, use the
# wit-import > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
