Description:

Network manager for kde.

Allows you to configure different network profiles using all encryptions wpa_supplicant provides (wep, wpa, wpa2 etc) for wireless networks.
Since version 0.4.5 kwlan can connect to unencrypted networks if wpa_supplicant is not available.

Kwlan can also store profiles for wired networks.

Dialup networks can be edited and connected to as well.

Systray icons show connection statistics per interface (can be disabled).

Attention: Since 0.6.0, Kwlan uses kdesu to do administrative tasks so you must be able to run dhclient, ifconfig, wpa_supplicant (see help file)!
New kubuntu binery fixes dependency problems.




Changelog:

Version 0.6.3:
-------------
- Fixed Bug: Setting to show New Interface Wizard was not stored correctly.
- Fixed Bug: Adding new network from Scanning didn't fill in encryption settings automatically
- Fixed Bug: WPA enabled networks were shown as new if wpa_supplicant was not started
- Fixed Bug: access to pppd was not tested correctly
- Access Dialup networks from context menu of interface systray icon.

Version 0.6.2
-------------
- Added option for ad-hoc networks
- Added option to show commands in kdesu password requests
- Shows signal strength in context menu
- Shows unconfigured networks in context menu to automatically add the scanned networks
- rewritten scanning code independent of wpa_supplicant

 standby recovery

hi

I got the following problem when I recover my laptop from standby mode a new set of eth0 and eth1 are detected. This mains that if now I have two interfaces in kwlan called eth0 and two called eth1.

A suggestion when a connection is astablished with an AP. The program says it's connected while in fact you still have to get an IP adress. Till that time It should say it's connecting.

I sometimes use vpn. the Kvpn tool doen't really work for me so I open the connection through the commandline. That creates a new network device. Is it possible to make kwlan start a dhclient process when that happens?

I use Kubuntu, how do you run the app? I have only got it to work using kdesu. Which is not completely ideal.

The improvements to kwlan are great, keep up the good work.

Hi,

I'll have a look at the duplicate interfaces after standby.
Regarding vpn, I use vpnc which gets an ip address automatically. An option would be to use a script that after the vpn connection starts dhclient.

In kubuntu, I start it as a normal user, you nned to allow this user to start /tmp/kde-user/wrapper*.tmp using sudo to enable Kwlan to do administrative tasks.


Regards,

Tom.

Hi,

I allready created a script that does that. But thought it might be an idea to let kwlan start a dhclient when it detects the new interface.

I tryed that, but somehow I don't see any info from wpa_supplicant. I can start wpa_supplicant but then it doesn't know it's running. So I that's where I get stuck.

 some issues

Hello,

Either I'm missing something very obvious or the tarball misses files:

In file included from main.cpp:3:
kwlanmainwin.h:11:19: kwlan.h: No such file or directory

Also from what you wrote, at least on Suse, it won't build with
automake-1.9, only 1.7

We need to port this to FreeBSD 6.x

Does the problem still exist with 0.6.0?
If so, can you send be the output of your configure / make?
It should work with automake 1.9 now, I need to change this in the documentation.

Regards,
Tom.

 Two gripes

A great application but I have three smallish issues:

1. Whenever I change profile or attempt to disable my wireless interface, I get an error window with the message 'KWlan was unable to Release IP address ...'

2. Whenever kwlan is running it seems to create an enormous amount of disk activity. This prevents the disk from powering down to save power and presumably also slows down other i/o intensive applications. Is this really necessary?

3. I don't see any need to put the main kwlan icon into the system tray since it's one of those things that you set up once and then forget. System tray real estate can become scarce and I only want things there that I'm going to use.

 Notes and Usage

Hi,

Overall an excellent start, but I ran into some issues.

1. releasing a connection doesn't work. Don't know why.

2. It's not clear that you must have a sudo setup or "kdesu kwlan" to start to make it work. Perhaps adding a reminder to the error messages when calling iwconfig (or others) fails?

3. The wireless access point scanning needs to show quality. There's an entry for it in the gui, but no statistics show. Iwlist show statistics properly.

4. The wireless access point scanning needs to detect whether or not there's WEP enabled.

5. Profiles don't update on the GUI after adding a wireless connection from the scan dialog box. If I close and reopen at the kicker my new wireless entry is there, so it's created right. The gui needs a refresh though.

FYI: I'm on Debian Etch with madwifi card.

LOVE this application. Thank you!

 kdelibs4c2a

Hi,

When try to install the ubuntu package I get the following error.

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of kwlan:
kwlan depends on kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.5-1); however:
Version of kdelibs4c2a on system is 4:3.5.5-0ubuntu3.1.

I looked it up and the 4:3.5.5-1 is a feisty package not an edgy one. How did you upgrade to this version?

I got an other idea fo rthe app. You now show all the access points in that are somehow configured, could you make it so that only the available accesspoint are given, and the hidden accesspoints?

Hi,

it might be because I have the current KDE 3.5.6 and the KDE 4 Beta 2 on my system. I' ll try to compile on a clean system this weekend.

Regarding the available networks: Good idea, I'll have a look into it.

Regards,

Tom.

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
