I would like to know a distribution independent way to connect to WPA2 wireless networks.
Do the wireless tools support wpa2? iwconfig and such?
Or is it necessary to use wpa_supplicant? Having to edit a config file every time if changing between many networks is quickly frustrating.
I am aware of tools like wicd, but would like to know if there is a standard way to do this on all distributions without requiring third party software.
