Wireless Assistant (wlassistant) is a small application that allows you to connect to wireless networks.

- 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.

- 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.


*** 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
* FIX: don't check for connection while wizard is running
* FIX: remove default gateway upon disconnection if not managed by DHCP client
* FIX: updated Polish translation (with help from riklaunim)
* FIX: Many internal changes, more stable

 WPA Support?

 by MattM on: May 24 2007

I just upgraded to 0.5.7, but the WPA area is all grayed out and there are little question marks (?'s) next to each field including WPA provider.

What am I missing here??? Thanks.

First, try to 'forget' current settings for the network, if it was configured before WPA was enabled on the access point, then try to connect with reconfiguring.
In case this doesn't work - make sure that "iwlist <iface> scan" returns WPA parameters for your network (post output if unsure).

Hi. Wireless Assistant takes the values for WPA configuration from 'iwlist <iface> scan' output. If it's not there - there's not much I can do at the moment. The parsing will be replaced with iwlib calls, but that may take a while, even though I already started working on it. So if your driver does not report these values in iwlist output, by all means try ndiswrapper. Let me know if that helped.

hi. the file is wlassistantrc. it's in the kde config directory (global or in your home directory), e.g. home/abc/.kde/share/config/.
"locate wlassistantrc" should give you the result.

 Unable connect wep

 by typomaster on: Aug 13 2007

I have an Acer Ferrari 3400 running FC7. I am pretty much a noobie, but I manged to install the lastest wl_apsta.o and bcm43xx-006. I also have installed wlassistant.

I am able to use wlassistant to scan the neighbourhood and see all the networks. I am able to connect with those that do not have any encription. I cannot connect to my LAN with has WEP. I have a Dlink router holding my lan together. The settings are open with a hex key. Windows connects without a problem, but FC7 will not connect. My router is listed in the scan and it correctly tells me it uses WEP.

My encription is 10-decimals. If I enter the decimals into Windows, it works, but not in FC7

Please forgive the typos...I am, after all, typomaster

Hi. To troubleshoot your problem, you might do a few things. First of all, take a look at wlassistant console output (run it from console by typing 'sudo wlassistant' or 'kdesu wlassistant'). You can post it here, if you need more help with it. You can also try to connect manually using 'iwconfig' commands and 'dhcpcd' or 'dhclient' (don't know which one is present in FC). Let me know if that helped.

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.
