Since you said you use a WEP key:

iwconfig wlan0 essid HOME key s:string
or
iwconfig wlan0 essid HOME key hex-characters

will probably do what you want. Look at the man page for iwconfig.

If you use WPA, WPA-2 or stronger passphrases, look at the man pages
for wpa_supplicant and wpa_supplicant.conf.

We prefer bottom-posting on this list, if you please.

"Any" input? OK!

1) In GMail, after clicking Reply, please click the 'Plain Text' link above
the text entry area.

2) please don't "top post" in replies.

Both topics are covered in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines
which you're asked to read before posting to the lists.

3) Instead of suggesting you peruse previous threads with a link like
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=configure+wireless+site%3Alists.fedoraproject.o rg

try
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:_Ch13_:_Linux_Wireless_Networking


I'm partial to 'wl-assistant' (that's

# yum install wl-assistant

from the CL) to configure wireless connections, for what it's worth.

If you're able to use WPA2 instead of WEP, do it. WEP is as secure as a
wet paper bag. It can take unskilled script kiddies mere moments to
break it.
