In the main thread says that is a problem with the permissions. So I try killin' the wincd process and startin' it as a root (su wincd-gtk ), it starts but not connect. So, thats the question, how can we connect to a wifi network with pass.Thanks so much.PD: Excuse me for my English.Cheers,Starcarr.

I managed to connect to wifi but still need to run the browser as root unfortunately;first create /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf which should contain something like;
Code:
ap_scan=1ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicantnetwork={       ssid="[color=red]network-ssid[/color]"       scan_ssid=0       proto=WPA RSN       key_mgmt=WPA-PSK       pairwise=CCMP TKIP       group=CCMP TKIP       psk="[color=red]wireless-Password[/color]"}
the above example is for WPA2 encryption, more detailed advice hereThen add the following to /etc/network/interfaces;
Code:
auto loiface lo inet loopbackauto ra0iface ra0 inet dhcppre-up wpa_supplicant -B -i ra0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -D wextpost-down killall -q wpa_supplicant
Then remove wicd (optional!);
Code:
sudo apt-get remove python-wicd wicd wicd-cli wicd-client wicd-curses wicd-daemon wicd-gtksudo apt-get autoremove
Then create /etc/hosts with containing the following;
Code:
127.0.0.1 eken
then reboot.Still not sure what's causing the permission problems but when I run ping and traceroute as user both report the following;
Code:
socket: Permission denied
but both work as root.regardsLee

Starr is your access point's ESSID and any passphrase all in lower case letters? The touchscreen keyboard presently doesn't do caps.If you are lowercase only, have you tried to connect using terminal, setting the wireless params with iwconfig and then running ifconfig ra0 up ?http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org/man_pages/iwconfig8.html

hi, guys.Actually, in yesterday's night I started the debian and it just connect to the network. For the record, I only set the pass 2 days ago, and it doesn't connect, yesterday I leave to home in the night, clicked the icon of the network, and then click to connect on the network. It take a lot of time, but connect.On the other hand, I try to install a lot of apps and don't work, actually makin' an 'su apt-get update' doesn't work, it sends an error. I'm back on ecotox.Cheers, Starcarr.

It's easier to ssh in to install apps, once networking is up of course.You would need "sudo apt-get update"or "sudo -s" will drop you to a root shell without a password

Another question.My WiFi connection is terminated after 1-2 minutes of work. At the official Android 1.7.4 everything is fine. Somewhere, said that the WiFi and USB host are related, and USB off of its non-use. Where am I correct option to USB Host is not disabled or turned off my WiFi?P.S. Forgive me for my Google-English.

I've problems with my wifi connection too. I turned on the wifi module and I edited my /etc/network/interfaces like that:

iface ra0 inet static
wireless_essid mywif
wireless_key s:mypassword
#wireless_mode restricted
#wireless_keymode open
wireless_channel 8
address 192.168.1.29
netmask 255,255,255,0
gateway 192.168.1.4
#dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4
auto ra0

I've wep protection and no wap network. I've edited the /etc/network/interfaces several times, and I could not do it work =/
