configuring FON point

I installed Ububtu 6.10 on an old laptop. Installation was fine. The wireless network card inside the laptop detected my FON point immediately. But he detects only the public part of the FON point. Wat steps do I take to get the card on my private part of the FON point?

Ubuntu 6.10 is very, very

Ubuntu 6.10 is very, very old. The WLAN stack has changed completely sind linux 2.6.22.But maybe this helps (I don't know your card and driver):In /etc/network/interfaces your device should be configured similar to this:auto wlan0iface wlan0 inet staticpre-up iwconfig wlan0 essid yourprivateSSIDpre-up iwconfig wlan0 mode managedpre-up iwpriv wlan0 set AuthMode=WPA2PSKpre-up iwpriv wlan0 set EncrypType=AESpre-up iwpriv wlan0 set WPAPSK=34feab51345cdfeacaa23EBfeb56c....... (this is hex, a key in "" is ASCII)address 192.168.0.2netmask 255.255.255.0gateway 192.168.0.1Generate a secure AES-PSK with 63 random characters using wpa_passphrase.While the fon hardware may be ok, I wonder why a free software advocat should use software from two evil companies that don't care about privacy or customer service. Maybe there're other hotspot networks that don't take 50% of your revenue. The ten $/€ off the routers price really pay off later for them. I've heard that fon routers are flashable with DD-WRT or openwrt. Multi SSID still works then. At least think about it and maybe you can generate more money because it's your investment, your work and your service.
