  1. Since it is web-based, it is pretty straightforward to use operate AWLP.

  2. You first need to figure out the IP address of eth0 interface. In the installation phase, if you specify a static IP address, then the IP address you are going to use to logon to web-based management, is this IP address. If you have chosen to use DHCP to obtain an IP address from a DHCP Server, then you need to do the following to find your leased IP address. Logon to the machine with the username "root" and the password you provided during the Slackware 10.1 installation phase. After you have successfully logon to the machine from the console, you need to run:

    # ifconfig eth0

    It will reveal the address in the format of
    This is the IP address of your eth0 interface.

  3. Now, open up your favorite browser, type in the address field, where is the IP address you took note of it in the previous step. It will show you a welcome page with Linux logo on it.

  4. At the bottom of the welcome page, you will see a link to AWLP management, click on it, it will ask you a username and a password for authentication. In lowercase, type "admin" for the username and "awlp" for the password, and press 'OK' button.

  5. DO NOT forget to change these default username and password at your earliest convenience for security reasons.

  6. You will see that AWLP comes with default values including the encryption method and an encryption key for the security concerns. I tried to list the ones that are critical to the operation of the wireless interface.
