# Wireless configuration using /etc/network/interfaces documentation

I followed the tutorial here and was able to properly configure my network: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202834&page=181

I know of the documentation in /usr/share/doc/wireless-tools/README.Debian, but it doesn't detail the options that were used.

Where can I find the documentation for the settings that were used? For example, where can I find the documentation on the options (wpa-ssid, wpa-psk, etc.)?

I'm googling for the same thing, here is what I found.

Arguments prefixed with "wpa-",which are used for wpa_supplicant Managed Mode,are documented in /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.Debian.gz.

Arguments in form of wireless-<function> are equivalent to iwconfig <interface> <function> <value>, so the usage can refer to iwconfig(8) manpages.

Change accordingly

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid myssid
wpa-psk a1b2c3d4e5
