Hi,

I have installed FC4 on a Toshiba Satellite 3000. The wireless card was
found and installed. It will connect to any access point that is
unencrypted, but I cannot find where I would enter information to
connect to my access point which I have encrypted.

Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly
appreciated.
    

Well, NetworkManager does a good job for that, but a quick way to test
is to use iwconfig as:

Say the interface is wlan0, ESSID is foo, and the key is 12345 then

iwconfig wlan0 essid "foo" mode Managed key 12345

then do:

dhclient

Thanks for the lead. I found where to input the information and will be able to test in a couple of hours.
