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?

try no quotes, or using the apostrophe ' instead?

p.s. yes, it's definitely possible, as I've used that myself (albeit with Cacko) to connect to wifi APs with a space in the name - damn annoying!
