Time for action bypassing Open Authentication
Let us now look at how to bypass Open Authentication:

- We then connect to this access point using the command
iwconfig wlan0 essid "Wireless Lab" and verify that the connection has succeeded and that we are connected to the access point:
- Note that we did not have to supply any username / password / passphrase to get through Open Authentication.
