If this app segfaults, please mail the output of "iwlist scan", "iwconfig" and the contents of "/proc/net/wireless". It's important for improvement, as I don't have access to a lot of wlan-cards. If it fails to build, please mail me the output of the "make" process, along with distro/compiler-version. Thanks in advance :)

Waveselect was first thought of as a replica of the Windows XP wlan-connection tool. It makes it a snap to discover local wlans, and connect to them. It depends on QT-3.x (3.3.3 was used to develop it), and wireless-tools (iwlist, iwconfig). It should work with every card that works with wireless-tool. Use of the great KNemo-tool: ( HTTP://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=12956 ) as a companion is recommended, for extra comfort.

Future releases of waveselect will support more features, as long as it can be implemented while still keeping a simple and easy GUI. So please hammer me with all the things you think suck about the UI. (user-friendlyness is high priority)

Features planned for future releases:
- Profile-creation for often used AP's (home/work/school/etc)
- Automatically roaming between AP's defined by a profile
- Integration with kismet/gpsd/mysql, for showing ESSID's kismet have previously decloaked.
- Support alternative dhcpd-clients other than dhcpcd
- Support for non-dhpcd networks. Letting the user specify ip, gateway, dns, proxy, etc. manually.
- Configure-dialog for specifying paths etc.
- KDE integration (KDE-classes, KDE-systray))

This tool must be run as root, unless your user have access to change driver-parameters with iwconfig, and start dhcpcd.


- GUI improvements. Options are no longer available if no network is selected. Also beautify the "scan-results" if no networks are found.
- Do an "ifconfig up" on the selected device before scanning.
(some?) cards using the madwifi-driver does not return scan-data unless this is done (reported by TMS)
- Instead of killing all dhcpcd instances before associating, check
if the /var/run/dhcpcd-.pid exists. If it does, get
the pid of the cards current dhcpcd-process from this file,
and kill only this process. If file does not exist, assume dhcpcd
is not running for the card. (reported by TMS)
- This time, it handles a notebook with several wlan-cards better.
In fact, it handles them at all.
- Improved parsing once again to make it even more fault-tolerant.
Don't know about any way to segfault it now. But if you find one, be sure to mail me and let me know.
- Manage encryption-settings better. It will now manage to set four
different encryption keys. You select which one should be the
transmitted key, by selecting the key you want to be active
in the "key index" combo-box before pressing associate.
- The "security-mode" option was actually connected to code this time,
so it will now have effect.

Paths to ifconfig, iwconfig, iwlist, kill and dhcpcd are hardcoded. Theese paths will match the Gentoo-distribution. If your distro use others, it should be a breeze to grep the dlgmain.ui.h file, and replace them to suit your settings. Although, this is not a permanent solution!!

Any idea how things are going? how about a link to the old sources? The program looks wonderful but I haven't seen anything in a while.

I nearly had the v0.2.0 complete, which was a MAJOR improvement compared to this version. Rewritten using the KDE libraries, proper build system, cleaned up UI, and lots of new functionality. Unfortunately I lost the sourcecode before I finished it for release. Currently I'm not working on this project. See a lot of "new" similar apps have appeared after this one.

But I have not given up I guess. I really want to do this program, because I have plenty of GREAT power-user ideas I've never seen in any other similar apps do.

If I ever do a rewrite, (which I hope I do), It'll probably wait for KDE4, and I will probably start with it Christmas 2007. (due to work issues)

Hey there,
I can't download wave select. Seems to be a dead link. Do you got an alternative link?

Is the project alive? Or what would you recommend as an alternative for Qt4 or KDE4?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
