Well, one of my ideas is to have Netbook connect to my home wireless and any open wireless to grab:
1) Maps as needed
2) Radio programs (I listen to NPR)
3) Hourly News Update podcasts
So the question is, how do I set my Netbook into this mode to attach to any open wireless automatically without user intervention. I (ideally) would like it to use existing setup connections, but when those are not available and an unknown open wireless is available, it should use it. I don't see anyway to do this using the Network Manager on my current (Sony) laptop.
Also, will the wget -c option work in thy plan?
Anyone have experience setting something like this up?
Thanks in advance
