Connect to WiFi AP from command line

If you normally use GUI, e.g. Gnome or KDE, but happen to be at the command prompt and need to connect to a WiFi access point which is already known to your computer, just issue the command:

  • nmcli c up id <APName>

Where the APName is name of the access point as it was saved in your network configuration.
