I followed the awesome guide here to dual boot Ubuntu on my surface pro but I'm stuck at making wireless work. The network I am trying to connect to is unsecured so I am a little lost at what to put in the wpa_supplicant.conf file. This is the code to put for an encrypted network

ctrl_interface_group=0
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
scan_ssid=1
ssid="mySid"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="passwordGoesWhere?"

What exactly do I put for psk and key_mgmt since it is unsecured? Thanks!

Use key_mgmt=NONE, and you can comment out or remove the psk="" line.
