 Won't find my card

 
 by Praxxus on: Aug 3 2005
 
Score 50%

My wireless adapter is configured as eth1 on my laptop. Running wlassistant causes it to exit with a "no adapters found" (or whatever) message.

The adapter is in, and has already pulled down an IP address via DHCP from the campus network.

Any suggestions?

 Automatic connection

What about creating an automatic connection so that people don't have to re-enter the settings every time? Could be either before start-x or after in the boot sequence...


Looking for a distribution 100% compatible with debian sid? Use Kanotix!

It's a feature planned for a long time already... and I'm absolutely sure it will be there one day.
Btw: what do you mean by 're-entering the settings'? Don't they get saved in wlassistantrc on your setup?

wlassistant show an unencrypted net here with a padlock... I though it had encryption untill I saw it in kismet. also there should be an option to select no-encryption ;) I like the gui bigtime, pretty and functional! Only need WPA now and its perf-ect!

hmm, the unencrypted net now works, updated to newest (didn't see it ! :()

I don't like the one-click connect thing though, I would like to select the row and then push a connect button or something.

Press 'Configure...', uncheck 'Honor KDE single click' and you'll have your desired behavior. The caption will not change to 'Disconnect' though if connected item is selected... Pressing it will disconnect. This will be modified soon.
Thanks for your feedback!

yup ... on both of them ..
it won't detect the wep enabled on the ap
it does detect the ap, but not the wep, and thus, it won't let me configure the wep key (security is always greyed out as reported earlier)

coulld it be related to the fact that I have to:
iwconfig ath0 key xxxxxxxxx

and AFTER that I go
ifup ath0
to get ifplugd and knemo to pop up the link icon?

see ya =)

i forgot ... if ath0 is already up, I just issue a iwconfig ath0 key xxxxxx and that's all i need to get the link up

if you need extra info (ifplud.conf, ifcfg-ath0, etc), just let me know ;)

see ya

#else bgColor =((KListViewItem*)this)->backgroundColor();

You rule =)

it does compile ok on kde 3.3.x
up until now I was patching every version with this simple patch that would, on netlistviewitem.cpp:

else
- bgColor = ((KListViewItem*)this)->backgroundColor(column);
+ bgColor = ((KListViewItem*)this)->backgroundColor();

But now I don't need it any more =)
Thank you =)

 Login webpages

Thanks for the great application! I looks nice, is simple to use and hides all the complex details for the user. It is easily the best wireless network manager I've used so please keep up the good work. ;-)

I do have a feature request however which would make things easier in certain situations. For example, at my work, I have to go through a login webpage to get my wireless internet connection working. Once I have connected to the access-point, the first webpage that I try to load will return a login webpage where I have to enter my username and password. wlassistant successfully connects to the network in this case, but reports a failed connection because it cannot ping google.com. Is it possible to check the connection in another way that will not fail here? The login page means it is actually possible to receive a page if you request the google webpage (i.e. but the page returned is the login page) but pinging it is not possible. Perhaps this could be checked for instead.

Ideally, what would work best here is for wlassistant to check if the connection is working and then pop-up a konqueror window so the user could login. There is no way you could detect that the network will work like this so a check-box option would be great for this (e.g. "Open the following webpage once connected?").

I know the above situation is the case in certain work places, cafes etc. so hopefully the interface could provide a friendly solution to it. For example, certain networks will require you to login with a username/password (universities, work), others will ask for payment details (cafes).

Hi! Thank you for the comment and suggestions!
I was aware of the problem since I'm using my laptop in a cafe quite often... Your comment reminded me that maybe it's time to deal with the problem. ;) This will be done in the near future, so stay tuned! :)
Oh, and thanks for the words of appreciation! :)
Cheers.

Ok. As there are some drivers that don't create '/wireless' subdirectory in sysfs, next version will include some solution to force usage of user-selected interface. Give me some time and it'll be there. It not a true and universal solution, but it'll work for now.

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.
