WPA-PSK on Linux (the easy way)

Nice and easy:

1. Make sure that your card's firmware supports WPA. Go here or here, for info and files.

2. Get the wpa_supplicant installed on your machine.

3. Modify /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf with your network settings:
network={
ssid="essid"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="secret"
}

4. Launch the supplicant and you are done!

wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -Dhostap -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Enjoy!
