Description:

Wireless Assistant (wlassistant) is a small application that allows you to connect to wireless networks.

* MAIN FEATURES:
- WPA-PSK Encryption Support (WPA/WPA2)
- WEP Encryption Support
- Not Broadcasted ("hidden") ESSIDs Support
- Per Network (AP) Configuration Profiles
- Automatic (DHCP, both dhcpcd and dhclient) and manual configuration options.
- Connection status monitoring.

* MAIN REQUIREMENTS:
- wireless-tools 27 or newer (with iwlib)
- dhcpcd or dhclient
- sudo
- wpa_supplicant with wpa_cli for WPA-PSK support

* Example sudo config: If you want to e.g. allow all users from some group to use wlassistant, add the following line to your /etc/sudoers:
%{group_name} ALL=NOPASSWD: {path_to_kde}/bin/wlassistant

* MADWIFI WPA-PSK: If your card uses a madwifi driver, make sure it's madwifi-ng.
* NDISWRAPPER WPA-PSK: make sure you use ndiswrapper version newer than 1.13.

 Hide AP

Greate app!
Nice would be a feature to hide some accesspoints.
At my place there are lots of APs, but only two are relevant. I'd like to right-click them and say "ignore this AP forever"...

 Don't turn off radio

Hi !

Wireless assistant is a great utility, thanks for this software !

I have one problem though: I have a PCMCIA-card with a rt2500-chipset. It works quite well, it just has a problem when it's only turned on very shortly, as wireless assistant does when scanning for networks. It just doesn't return any network when switched on that short.

I made a quick'n'dirty hack: I removed the ifdown-command from the scanning-subroutine.

Could you make this an option: Not to turn off the network card ? Or add some delay, for example scanning some seconds (5-10 ?) for networks ? The first option did work better for me though.

Another feature request is one that was already mentioned: Running a skript after connection, for example to start a VPN connection.

P.S.: Yet another idea: The problem that you can't ping google could also be solved by this script. Use the exit code of it as error code. For example 1 means there was an error connecting, 0 means everything is OK.

Hi. Thanks for the comments and ideas. The ability to run a user-specified command after connecting will be most likely added soon. As to the scanning problems on some systems, could you email me which line you removed/changed to solve it, so I can think the problem over and implement some fix? Thanks.

 start and crash

I have a problem. When I start wlassistant it scans for networks and it find some, but shortly after it just crash. I have not compiled any debug points into it, yet. anyone who have experienced this odd behaviour.
another fact: the wireless moniter, which shows the network quality (you probaly knows it :) ) also crash shortly after I run it.
I run gentoo linux on a kde-meta 3.4.1 however the wireless assistant is not installed through the portage.

 Debian Sarge Crashes

I've just tried installing both CVS version and 0.5.3. Each fail just after the networks are detected just after starting. I found an older gentoo source, version 0.5.0, and it seems to be stable, is anyone else having these issues?

Hi.
There'll be a 0.5.4 release within days and it will include knoppix based debian packages. The creator of these packages reported no problems, so you might want to try them.
Thanks for the feedback.

Looks like it's not just your problem (2 posts up). Looks like I'll have to look into that anyway...

I also had to use the suggestion of removing ifdown from the script. Otherwise the network card would not "come up" fast enough for the network test. I am using the package from here

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/opsys/linux/gentoo/distfiles/wlassistant-0.5.0.tar.bz2

It compiles and works in debian sarge without any problem after I remove ifdown from the script. Maybe this will help in your troubleshooting

one quick note, if I just open it as a user without sudo it doesnt crash, it sits at the screen that says I have insufficient permissions.... so its something after that at least. After I click ok I can see that it detects the card and ESSID of local networks but then again crashes.

Hopefully it is ok to post what the output is when running via command line....

where it say "You should include ... This time I will do it for you." it should say "You should include sys/socket.h. This time I will do it for you."

You need wireless-tools 27 for this to compile. If you are using version 26 or earlier (and it seems so) it should compile if you change all occurences of 'iw_sockets_close' with just 'close' in watools.cpp.
I'll make it work with older wireless-tools in the next release.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
