wifi-menu - Interactively connect to a wireless network
*wifi-menu* [-o | --obscure] [+INTERFACE+]
*wifi-menu* [-h | --help]
*wifi-menu* allows to interactively connect to a wireless network on
+INTERFACE+ using a netctl profile. In case no netctl profile is
available, one can be generated. If only one wireless interface is
available, +INTERFACE+ can be omitted.
*wifi-menu* is only able to generate netctl profiles for simple network
configurations. Profiles for more complex configurations must be set up
manually. See *netctl.profile*(5) for more information.
+-h+, +--help+::
Print a short help text and exit.
+-o+, +--obscure+::
Show asterisks for the characters of the password and store the password
as a hexadecimal pre-shared key.
