This is a case where the GUI really is worth using. Even if I didn't
plan to use gnome for anything else, I might well use orca and gnome and
the Networkmanager ui to configure wireless.
It's not that I can't do it from the command line, it's that it's a bit
fiddly and the GUIs are nice and simple.
Sure, although I wouldn't recommend using /etc/network/interfaces to set
It does work after a fassion, but you're going to have better luck with
NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant directly.
For NetworkManager, a config file in
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections might look like
I'm not sure you actually need the uuid; I suspect not.
/etc/network/interfaces might look like
iface wlan0 inet manual
iface default inet dhcp
And then wpa_supplicant.conf might look like
