Just got my olpc this morning. Trying to connect to my wifi network. I have a hidden name and MAC filtering. I was able to find the olpc MAC address and enter it into the router. BUT in trying to use the instructions for inputing the wifi hidden name into the olpc I get an error. su -l after hittern return here a prompt comes up:-bash-3.2# I assume that is correct

/sbin/iwconfig eth0 mode managed essid <myhiddennetwork> After hitting return an error says: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline'

/sbin/dhclient eth0

exit


I also tried entering all 4 lines without any returns and I get the error: networkname no such file or directory.
