 WEP problem

 
 by bushwakko on: Sep 1 2005
 
Score 50%

I had a problem with WEP, turns out the AP i connected to had WEP set up with ASCII, so the password "abcde" was actually "6162636465". I had to use password "6162636465" for it to work, but in windows abcde works just fine. Seems like windows detects that the password should be ASCII and then translates it? I spent a few days working on it, only when I checked the AP (which I didnt set up, I figured it out).

Hi!
I'm not sure about this answer since I had no chance to test it, so consider it a guess:
wlassistant accepts any WEP key that iwconfig does. AFAIK iwconfig supports ASCII keys. You should just prepend "s:" to it. That would be "s:abcde" in your case. Let me know if it works!

 pinging google.com

I didn't like the pinging of google.com, It's not a very good way to check for a network connection, if dhcp is given that should suffice. We have a network on campus which when you connect to it you only get dhcp, and you when you first open ANY website, you get to an authentication page, and THEN you get access to google. Pinging to check if the network is connected is redundant and unneccesary. If you get dhcp, you are authed correctly :)

Hi. Pniging some host on the internet is useful in some cases. Getting a dhcp lease means only that you were connected to the access point. If you're connected to AP but it has some problems or you need to login via a webpage before accessing network - you might want to know whether internet is yet accessible or not. That's why wlassistant since 0.5.4 has 3 different connection states: not connected, connected to AP and connected to internet.

 sudo

sudo doesn't work for me, says:

wakko@lapwakko ~ $ sudo wlassistant
wlassistant: cannot connect to X server

if I drop the sudo it works, but it's limited because of the user. suing and then running as root works. I think you should use the kdesu thing that most kde-apps that need root-access use. You can even remeber that it has root access and it will just start the next time I think, I know systray apps do that (And the should REALLY be a systray app)

btw: FANTASTIC APP :D

I had the same problem, so I just do a runas root in the kmenu for the time being.

 Couldn't obtain IP

 
 by kilgoretrout on: Sep 1 2005
 
Score 50%

Scanning works fine, but when I try to connect to anything, I get "ERROR: Couldn't obtain an IP address!". I've set my dhcpcd path to "/sbin/dhclient", which exists and I thought works okay. Can anyone point me in the right direction? thanks.

Hi!
1st: you do not set the path do dhclient - it's detected automatically (look at console output for detected DHCP client). The things you do set in the config file are path to .pid file and path to file with lease information (read only purposes).
If you have problems obtaining an IP address via DHCP, try increasing the DHCP client timeout in the options.
If you still have problems - what does console output say? Does it work if you run dhclient manually from the console?
Hope that helps.

Oh. Actually it seems like you're using a very old wlassistant version (0.3.x). The above post assumes you are using at least 0.5.0. I do recommend that you download the 0.5.4. Good luck.

 5.4a still crashing

 
 by gumby on: Sep 9 2005
 
Score 50%

I've installed 5.4a on both debian and mandrake systems. Both do the exact same thing. The program opens, it sees an AP, and the crashes immediately. Has there been any update as to why this might be? It happens with both compiled and precompiled versions. I've made sure each time to delete any files related to wlassistant before each install.

Hi!
I am aware that this problem has not been fixed yet. Even though I tried, I could not reproduce this crash even once... in that case, fixing this is totally dependant on the users' (like you;) feedback and debugger/console/other outputs they send me. Any help is appreciated and I won't be able to fix this without it.
Cheers.
PS: If you feel like helping out, feel free to write to my email.

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.
