Raspberry Pi with WI-PI running wirelessly

I ordered some Raspberrypi's with cases and WI-PI (wifi) dongles from farnell a couple of weeks ago.
It was only yesterday I decided to sit down and actually sort these out. I have installed debian wheezey on the raspberry pi, updated, plugged in the dongle, and ran some updates.
The dongle was automatically picked up in ifconfig, and i just needed to enter the wireless information in wpa_supplicant to get the dongle to work. To my suprise, the rpi was then running wirelessly after a reboot on just a plug by itself. I can then do everything i want on the pi without sitting on the floor infront of a tv with a keyboard on my lap.

WIll be putting up more posts soon!
