 WPA support?

 
 by jhorey on: Aug 27 2005

Many AP's these days support WPA these days instead of WEP. Although using wpa_supplicant is easy enough, it would be nice for wlassistant to be able to input shared WPA keys. So far this program looks great.

 Version Numbering

Could you please add a version number somewhere in the GUI when running wlassistant? I feel it would be handy to know a) what version you currently have and b) confirmation that an upgrade has worked successfully.

I know, it's not a question about application, but could you write me the name or a color scheme that you are using here? Thanks.

 Excellent utility

Impressively usefull utility! I've been searching for one like it for a long time now. Until now I used to manually scan, config and run dhcpcd. As far as I know, there's no other utility doing network scanning and network configuration at once in such a clean way. Thank you for your time and effort, creating this utility!

Thanks for that comment!
Motivation boosters are exactly what I need to keep working on the app.
Cheers.

 Excellent!!!

Works Great. I hate when the initialization scripts looks for a wireless network and spends minutes when there is none! So, just compile this magnificant program, cancel the "start at boot" option of the wireless connection, and enjoy the fast boot up and have the freedom to select your favorite wireless connection. Don't forget the "sudo" stuff though!!

Thank god we have it at last, I was starting to get worried ;) Thanks buddy.

 missng wlassistantrc

 
 by sambo57u on: Aug 31 2005

Some distributions are naming their
dhclient files with -ethX extension e.g.
/var/run/dhclient-eth1.pid . When I run
dhclient it misses these and things dhclient
is not running BUT puts a message saying
that we can put the explicit name in to
wlassistantrc file. I could not find any
template for this file, not its location.

Hi!
wlassistantrc can be found in ~/.kde/share/config/
In your case set the set the following line in the wlassistantrc [Paths] section:
DHCP PID File (dhclient)=/var/run/dhclient-%1.pid
'%1' will be substituted with the interface name. Let me know if you succeeded!
NOTE: b/c wlassistant uses sudo, you might need to be root to edit this file.

Yes. Thank you. Doing what you said
fixed the problem.

What would be nice is to have a system
wide wlassistantrc file, say in /etc

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.
