 Bug 1180261

Hello,

Any plans at implementing 1180261 ticket?
(http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1180261&group_id=134488&atid=730104)

Yes, it's MY ticket :+) and yes, I badly need it... BTW, if you need the updated patch, I can send it.

Hi!
Yup. Next version is going to support hidden essids. Working on it.

Forgot to write:
thanks for the patch! :)
However, I'm implementing it in a different manner, so... thx anyway! :)

Great to hear.

> However, I'm implementing it in a different manner

No problem :+)

--------------
I have another request: what about making ALL configuration profile-dependant?

I mean: I am a mobile user, connecting to at least 2 wireless during my day. I would like to be able to use a static IP address with all the usual stuff (DNS & co) in some cases, and perhaps dhcp in some others.

I don't need a confortable GUI to that: a simple "launch this script upon a connecton" would be enough, given I can use a separate script for each configuration and I can choose an option "do-not-launch-dhcp-and-do-not-try-to-configure-the-interface-staticaly"
I hope I've made myself clear :+)

Anyway, I admit that your software is the only usable wifi configuration utility I have found so far, so why not make it perfect ? :+)

this really beats the shit out of all the KDE wireless apps I've tried so far, great work!

A tiny little issue though: The signal level isn't really represented correctly in the stars, when listing my home network, it never gets rated higher than 2.5 stars, but when I'm connected I have a 90-100% signal level all the time according to iwconfig.
Also I agree with the guy above, profiled sefinately would be nice :)

Still I love it so far, good job!

Thanks for the comment and support! Profiles are planned for the post 0.4 release, that is after all the bugs are fixed and e.x. support for hidden essids is in place.
Still thinking on how to implement the profiles - if you (or anyone!) have a nice idea that is not "store all settings for a specific ESSID/AP" - let me know. There must be a smarter way to do this. (even I have some ideas;)

Why don't you like this? I mean, "store all settings for a specific ESSID" is more than enough for me and I don't really think I will ever need something more compilicated...

Hi! Well, I wouldn't need anything more complicated either. I'm actually thinking about something easier...
...well, wait a month or so (or more, I mean... seems like a major rewrite will be needed) and I will surprise you. :) It's all in my head ;)

About the quality: check what is the output of 'iwlist [iface] scanning' - that is where the value in wlassistant is taken from. If it reports the quality low - hm.... don't think there's much I could do about it. If it really is a bug - please sent the output of the above command to my email. Thx.

iwlist [iface] scanning does not work for all wireless drivers, AFAIK scanning requires monitor mode which at this moment only a few of the wireless drivers do support.

However, link quality is also given by iwconfig [iface], so that might be easier to use, if available.

 Great app!

Wow, this is a great app for managing wlan in linux/kde.
I've got a feature request though.
It would be cool if it was possible to make a list of prefered networks (based on essid/mac-adress?), and make wlanassitant automagicaly connect the highest one on the list if its available.
Maybe even make profiled settings for individual networks.
E.g you may want DHCP at school and static-ip at home.

Perhaps also make it systray-enabled, and showing a list of the networks if you right-click the icon? Thus making it easy and fast to switch between networks. :)

Anyway, great app! Keep up the good work.

Hi!
Thanks for nice ideas! Put them on my "perhaps todo" list. Anyway, there's still a looong way to go if I'm to implement all the current ideas + I have very little time lately. However: slowly, but surely... and it'll be done one day.
Cheers.

you can have a look at one of the todo lists (ONE of them) in the source package (TODO file). It's the one most frequently changed, so it's not definite.

I loved this app so much I wrote an ivman config to automatically launch wlassistant whenever I insert my PCMCIA card. You can check it out here:

 Nice, but ...

 
 by sebas on: May 22 2005
 
Score 50%

... this application really needs some more features, IMO:

1) Profiles
2) Systray applet
3) Support for essids not broadcasted
4) better support for manual setting up the IP data, including nameservers
5) Automatic choosing of the network (trying list from top to bottom or something like this)
6) Possibly option to switch on powermanagement of the interface,
7) a dcop interface ("dcop wlassistant connect auto" would definitely rock!)

I recently had a look at Intel's tool for Windows XP, which offers all the functionality I'd like in such a tool for Linux, although the UI definitely should be more sober.

Anyway, nice tool already, please keep working on it! :-)

Hi! Thanks for the comments. I do realise there's still a lot of things that need to be done. I had no time to code for the last 2-3 weeks and will not have any for 2-3 more... I have some nice ideas, you'll just have to wait a bit.

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.
