WiFi without Network Manager




I occasionally run, what I will describe as "Coffee House Lan Parties".  That means I connect to the Internet via WiFi, and then supply a "Local Ethernet" network (with ipv4), for others to connect with.

Doing this with Network Manager "worked", but only with "loud complaining" by Network Manager. 

What I want now, are the "steps" that Network Manager takes, to bring up WiFi, so I can create an "in-demand" Root-level Script that I can run, for the WiFi part.  (The rest works fine, using /etc/network/interfaces).

Thank you!
