i guess its around 2 in the morning. i got things solved with the lady and now am finally gettin my head focussed. its been hours since i’ve begun and i barely connected to a network via netcfg. i tried the manual methods but it didn’t seem to work out. I am now connected to a network with no authentication via rtl8187 device (thanks dipendra) and the speed is kinda crappy. Had i been able to connect to the WEP one that í’d cracked, i’d be getting anywhere around a 100 kbps at this time of the night, but i just cant connect to it from this terminal.
Previously, i couldn’t even locate the official installation guide. It just wasn’t there. Fortunately for me, i have a second computer at hand, just for today to do the blogging while my acer is updating pacman at a slow 10 kpbs.
So i guess, no sleep today…
update: 2:47am : still no sign of wep working. tried with the hex key, it connects put ping returns zero output.
