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.




Changelog:

*** RELEASE 0.5.7:
* NOTE: This release includes some brand new or rewritten features. Please submit bugs to sf.net page and comments/votes here. Thanks!

* NEW: Finally WPA-PSK support (WPA/WPA2, please test and report in case of problems!)
* NEW/FIX: Rewritten, completely new connection state detection (please comment!)
* NEW: Optional grouping of APs with the same ESSID
* FIX: UI refinements
* FIX: hide encryption keys in console output and edit dialogs
* FIX: Connection using dhclient fails

 KDE 4 integration

I am glad to hear that we will get WPA support soon! Your tool really helps as its the only reliable Linux-GUI for Wifi that I have come accross so far.

I was just wondering whether you might want to consider a tighter integration of your tool into KDE 4. It seems like KDE's standard wifi support is weak out of the box and that wlassistant should really become a standard component for wifi-network usage under KDE.

In particular I wonder whether you should consider coordinating your efforts with the guys who are working on the Solid Library (the new Hardware Abstraction API for KDE4). They already seem to have started on a Wifi-API as can be seen here: http://api.kde.org/cvs-api/kdelibs-apidocs/solid/html/classSolid_1_1Ifaces_1_1WirelessNetwork.html

I think if you split your wlassistant into backend/frontend for integration into Solid / Plasma respectively then that would really add to the overall KDE4 result!

Either way, keep up the great work!

Hi,
Thank you for your comments!
For your idea to come true, I first need to separate wlassistant into lib and frontend (as you suggested) AND port it to Qt4, which I don't really have time for, as of now and upcoming months. There exists a rewrite in Qt4 at _very_ early stages of development, but I had to stop working on it due to lack of time. So, as soon as I manage to start the porting, I will get back to your idea. It doesn't seem feasible earlier. Thanks.

 table size problem

Hi. I like you application very much and WPA support is very good news! After try your last version i have problems with the table (list of APs) size, which is bigger the window area and a horizontal scrollbar appears. I have changed columns size to solve that, but after click on the "Refresh" button was problem back :(.

Hi, Thanks for your comment!
It's like that by design, so the AP is not immediately visible, as it's needed only on very rare occasions and would add to complexity/clutter. It has been like that since 0.5.0.

I was having difficulties in setting up my wireless on my laptop with out of the box tools. None worked. This one worked like a gem.

 WPA2 not detected

 
 by davepb on: Apr 4 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi

I've install version 0.5.7 and it detects my WPA2 network as WEP. Why would it be doing this?

btw: I've never had any luck using wpa_supplicant to connect to my WPA2-PSK network. I've always had to use the iwpriv command. It seems to be more reliable.

Cheers

Dave

Hi. In case you had a different configuration before, chose "Forget Settings..." from the context menu of the WPA2 network, and reconfigure it. In case this does not help, please send me the output of your "iwlist <iface> scan" command (just the section with the WPA2 network).

Hi. Judging from the output of your iwlist command, and this forum thread:
http://www.nabble.com/Re:-rt73-driver-trouble-t3523306.html
it's your wireless card driver that implements WPA in a non-standard way (not through Wireless Extensions). As suggested in the above-mentioned thread, it seems like choosing installing ndiswrapper and using the native windows driver is the best solution if you want to connect to a WPA-protected network. Let me know how that worked.

Hi

Thanks for your reply.

Sadly I can't use the native windows drivers as I run 64-bit Linux and Belkin never release 64-bit windows drivers.

Thanks anyway.

Hi. Wireless Assistant does not use Network Manager in any way. If you meant if it works simultaneously with Network Manager's management - I don't know, haven't tested. Hope that answers your question. Cheers.

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.
