I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 (server) without GUI.
I have Netgear wireless card ( model:wg311v3 ) that i have installed it through ndiswrapper driver wrapper to work with windows driver.
I don't have dchp installed ( i want to have static ip so i can use router's port forwarding ).
I don't have network-manager installed.
I have googled a lot and haven't manage to connect to my home wireless network ( with encryption WPA/WPA2 PSK ). I am very confused of all the different approaches.
I am not experienced linux user working with terminal ( no GUI installed ) but i know the basics so as to understand what you are writing.
Can anyone explain me the steps to connect to my wireless router and gain access to the internet?
How do i set the ip addresses and everything? just a simple guide.
How do i set it up so as to work with WPA encryption?
I have tried a lot before posting this question but i haven't manage it to work and now i am very confused and need to start from the beginning.
