Solved: Connect to wifi from Xbian settings

Connect to wifi from Xbian settings
When I go to Xbian Settings and select Network wlan0, I get Status "DOWN".
I can login to xbian with SSH and that way find and connect to my wifi. Then, when I go to Xbian Settings the wlan0 is "UP".

But that won't work in my case as I won't use my Xbian at home. I will use it while traveling and I can't access it from SSH in those cases. I have to be able to use the "normal" settings pages to do my configuration.

Is there some other page I missed here?

If it says DOWN, you need to click on SSID to get a list of Wifi in the area. Select the one you want, type the passphrase and all should be working.

Thanks. That worked - I got the impression that SSID just was a info field.

Yes: It might be an idea to rename it something like "Select SSID"

Nope, no good idea. The next guy will come over unable to set IP-address because there is no text Set IP-address ...
