 **Step 2:** Now create a station mode interface using the ''​wlanconfig''​ tool. (Use ''​managed''​ for wlanmode) Bring the interface up.\\ **Step 2:** Now create a station mode interface using the ''​wlanconfig''​ tool. (Use ''​managed''​ for wlanmode) Bring the interface up.\\
 **Step 3:** Set the ''​essid''​ to ''​cs707''​. At this point, for the first few seconds, when you type the ''​iwconfig''​ command multiple times, you should see the ''​Frequency:''​ parameter in ''​iwconfig''​ changing. This implies that your client is scanning different channels to lock onto the frequency of your access point. After a while when you type ''​iwconfig''​ the ''​Frequency:''​ parameter should show the same frequency on which your AP is and ''​Access Point:''​ should contain the MAC address of your AP. \\ **Step 3:** Set the ''​essid''​ to ''​cs707''​.
