   e100: eth0: e100_watchdog: hyperlink up, 100 Mbs, full duplex

The usual identify is eth0 however it might be eth1, eth2, and so on.

Now you’ll be able to activate the community interface and ask for an IP (solely works if a DHCP server is current). sudo signifies that you execute the next command as root.

   dmesg

If it seems, you need to have the ability to join. First you want to activate the community interface (dmesg ought to have given you its identify):

   sudo ifconfig eth2 up

After that you want to connect with a selected wi-fi community. That is executed with iwconfig. If you wish to see a listing of all of the networks round you, use iwlist scan:

   sudo iwlist scan

Puredyne-nm-10.png

Networks with Encryption key: off are open and with out password. essid is the figuring out identify of a wi-fi community. Exchange my-network with the identify of your community, and eth2 with the identify of your wi-fi community interface. dhclient solely works if a DHCP server is current.

   
         sudo iwconfig eth2 essid my-network
         sudo dhclient eth2

For those who enter an ascii password, use s:my-password, in the event you use a hexadecimal one, you’ll be able to pass over the s:. Exchange my-password with yours.

   
         sudo iwconfig eth2 essid my-network key s:my-password
         sudo dhclient eth2
