The ubuntu software included a network tool that worked a little like wifi-radar.

So it seems the obvious thing to do is try ...
  • su
  • pacman -S wifi-radar
  • wifi-radar
And guess what. It WORKED. All I did was run the tool, it picked up on the existence of the ipw2200 chips right away, and found my wireless router. All I had to do was 'configure' things with the right mode (managed), channel (auto) and wep key and off it went and came right back with an IP address. I know it is supposed to do what it says on the tin. However it is still nice when it does.

OK I don't use wpa here so I cannot speak for that.

This is all getting to be too easy.
