    I am trying to set up WiFi
    I am running Slackware 14.2
    Not sure of the Linux version
    My hardware is not able to run graphical user interfaces so I need to do everything from the terminal.
    What commands do I need to run? Files edited?

    WiFi details needed to set up WiFi?

    Thank you.

    I set up WiFI 10 years ago from command line, on a host that worked as router and firewall between intranet and WiFI connection to Internet. It was a bit complicated and I was surprised the documention on how to do it did not exist. I don't remember anymore how I did it, and the notes I made are also not to be found anymore, which is kinda stupid of me.
    But using Internet Search Engines now with
    Linux setting up WiFI from command line
    does find promising articles. So things have gotten better.
    If all else fails, install LXDE on that host and set up WiFI there. It is a bit annoying to be forced to do this, especially on a host with minimal RAM.
