i was thinking. i know i can connect to my router with the little default wireless findy thing(wireless network connection menu) but i would like to know if there is anyway i can connect to my router via the unix terminal. i would like to do this to see if i can use a password list to gain access.

some routers can be access using telnet, please check your router's manual.
