wifi access

Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:49 pm

Is there a way of connecting my rpi via wifi to my home hub without knowing the password details for my home? ie by opening up my home network?

in /etc/network/interfaces

i have

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid NETGEAR
wireless-mode managed
wireless-key 4347D06350

which connects fine, but what if I want to connect to any network that I can - what can I do in my router and what would I have in my interfaces file to allow this?
