Dude, you are asking such a newbie question in a mailing list that is
supposed to be for kernel development, this is not the right place to
ask. A better place would be an irc channel, or your distro's mailing
Besides all that, you don't even provide enough information.
What you are trying to do? I'll assume you are just trying to set
your network card in managed mode, and then connect using an access
Are you are trying to use WEP, WPA, WPA2?
Just read the man-pages of iwconfig and wpa_supplicant, or look for
these terms in a search engine.
I'm sure you will find the answer in 5 minutes if you just look for it.
