As anyone who uses the sharp rom knows, you can't connect to an essid that has a space in the name. I tried searching these forums but couldn't turn up any info on how to do it. Can the config file be modified to add a space? Is there some manual way to add it? I tried modifying the config with stuff like "ess id" and 'ess id' but no go.

Is there any way?

yes, but it means breaking out an editor sad.gif

note - take a backup of files before changing them!

the configuration used when firing up the wifi is in the file /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.opts so you can edit that; its there you'd add the WPA=y statement.

each network profile is in a separate file in /home/zaurus/Applications/Network/modules
so take a look at each file and edit it to make changes permanent.

hope this helps
