708. Near my uncle's home network, which has a cloaked access point.
<neigbhorhood> : I can't see the network.
bash# iwconfig eth0 essid NETNAME
<neigbhorhood> : I can see the network. It shows a lock, requires a password.
[click] [enter password]
The network immediately disappears from network manager. I am not able to connect.
If I repeat the above iwconfig step, the network reappears, this time without a lock, though it still requires a password (and I have not successfully connected to it).
