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.

 no scanning possible

 
 by Heart on: Sep 14 2005
 
Score 50%

Hi,

I installed your app successfully and when I start it in a console I get these lines:

Checking radio...
ok
ifconfig_status: /sbin/ifconfig wlan0
scan: /sbin/iwlist wlan0 scan
==>stderr: wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Function not implemented

No networks found!

I'm using Draytek's Vigor 510 (USB) for my wlan.

What does above error means exactly? My usb dongle doesn't support scanning for AP's so Wireless Assistant is then useless for me :(!?

Thanks

 messes up config

Unfortunately this app messes up my wireless configuration after using it. The antenna is switched off, the driver-module is unloaded and the card isn`t recognized, even after reloading the driver manually. Have to restart linux, then everything works fine. Same on two systems.
I use the rt2500 module, compiled against 2.6.7, KDE 3.4.

Sorry, but I can`t recommend this app.

 Restricted Key

A problem I have had with all wireless apps except for "WiFi Mananger" has been you can not use a "restricted key"

For Encryption types, could you have, "Shared Key" "Open" and "Restricted Key"

Hi!
"Restricted" is a wireless-tools name that is equivalent with "Shared Key" (as opposed to "Open")
So, if you want 'restricted' use 'shared'. It's the same thing.
Cheers.

 a few ideas

 
 by bushwakko on: Oct 13 2005

I have a few suggestions:

- you should make it integrate with kde's sudo and have an option for remember password.

- you could make an systray icon (have you ever seen apple's airport? its great)

- you should make it integrate with wpa_supplicant or even better wpa_supplicants libs if any. wpa supplicant allready works with wep and different wpas and such, it also runs as a deamon and supports priority and stuff

just a few ideas! ;)

fantastic work

This is so much better than kwifimanager. I also agree that it could use a system tray, however.

About kdesu-- change the .desktop file to use "kdesu wlassistant"-- they way you have it now will fail silently unless the user has sudo setup to skip password checks, which not everyone does. (It took me a few minutes to figure out why I couldn't launch...)

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
