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.

 WPA

would be really cool to have a wpa-support in the application, maybe managed through wpa_supplicant...

but really great when you are not at home and want to check you mail through a public wavelan, great work :)

I fully agree. I use WPA at home because it simply is more secure. It would be great. THX

Worked great for me. Had kwifimanager installed on my Gentoo box and it was junky, wouldn't let me connect to hidden essid's, had issues scanning, etc. Got sick of messing with conf.d/net|wireless and found this while searching for help. First try and it worked great.

Didn't realize about it needing root, so remember to edit it's menu item in the kmenu if you plan to launch it from there, or follow the help in the description. I found out by launching it from a root console.

Not sure how I'll reconcile this with the startup routine, and it would be nice to maintain a list of 'known' networks for where I commonly go, but that's not essential.

Thanks!

 Kubuntu?

I've just discovered this little app while I was searching for a little app that could handle my wireless connection without recurring to the command line (it gets repetitive after a while). This application looks like what I was looking for. Unfortunately I can't install it in my kubuntu 5.10 install.

Are there any plans to create a kubuntu package? That would really come in handy.

We worked on a kubuntu pkg, but
there are problem with connect/
disconnect and so uploading is
on hold.

For debian and kubuntu pkgs see

and for TODOs

What a great app. Finally one that works. There is only one thing. When I connect to a wireless network, the assistent says that the connection failed, eventhough it was succesful. If I exit and start the assistent again, it does recognize the connection.

Any idea?

Hi. Thanks for reporting this problem!
Could you please post this question together with the console output on the public forums (homepage link above)? it will be easier to hunt the problem down there. And please specify what wireless card and kernel module for it are you using. Thanks in advance!

I've been experiencing this exact same problem for a while now, so I'll take the initiative here.

Note, I'm posting this information on the connection created by wlassistant, which was reported as failed, but is infact working.

Here's the console output I'm getting:

Loaded application options.

-------------------

My school does not do WEP encryption, nor VPN. It authorizes clients by their mac address, and redirects all http requests for unauthorized mac addresses to a webpage prompting them to log in. The connection reports failed in wlassistant, even though I've already been authorized on the network from a previous connection (my school only prompts me once a day)

Additionally, here is my routing table information (for my allegedly failed connection) :
10.4.76.0/23 dev wlan0 proto kernel scope link src 10.4.76.193
default via 10.4.76.1 dev wlan0

My network card is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller. I'm using the windows drivers for it via ndiswrapper.

Thank you,
Tim

one more thing: here is my /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient.leases file:

lease {
interface "wlan0";
fixed-address 10.4.76.193;
option subnet-mask 255.255.254.0;

option dhcp-server-identifier 10.8.0.2;
option domain-name "app.byu.edu";
renew 1 2006/3/13 19:56:03;
rebind 1 2006/3/13 19:56:03;
expire 1 2006/3/13 19:56:03;
}
lease {

rebind 1 2006/3/13 23:26:05;
expire 1 2006/3/13 23:56:05;
}

hope that might be of some assistance. thank you so much, this is a marvelous tool!

One more comment :)

I just thought I'd let you know this bug seems to be more network specific. At my work office, we have a WEP encrypted wireless network. From here I can connect without any trouble at all, and it doesn't report that the connection failed.

if you need any more info, feel free to contact me timcharper at gmail dot com.

Wonderful application. Thanks so much for you work. Any chance we can get this as a system tray application in the next version?

Can you be more specific?

You can add wlassitant icon
next to the systray without problem.
While not in the systray at least next
to it ;)

Maybe have a look at

ksystraycmd --help

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
