In MEPIS 6.0, you use MEPIS Utilities to manage wireless networking. You get to MEPIS Utilities in one of these ways: a) right-click the desktop, click Run Command, and type "mutilities" and enter your root password; b) Click System icon (next to K menu icon) --> Settings --> System Administration --> MEPIS Utilities, enter root password; c) open a shell (KMenu --> System --> Konsole), become root (su + password), type "mutilities."
Once MEPIS Utilities is open, do this:
- Click Network Interfaces.
- See where WiFi is located (e.g., eth0), then go to that tab and click "Start at System Boot" and "Use DHCP for IP" (unless you have a static IP address you use). Click Apply.
- Click on the Wifi tab and supply the ESSID of your network. Click Apply.
- Finally go back to the Status tab, stop anything that is running, and start the interface for your wifi.
