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

 KNetworkManager?

Can KWlan be merged with KNetworkManager?

i think it would be great if this be imported into kde / merged with knetworkmanager.
it would be great if the profile mechanism be simplified to the point where you can quickly add
-wireless-auto
-ethernet-auto
and setup your own profiles.

also it would be great if kppp's modem connections be integrated with this.
this way one has all possible internet connections at one place :)

Hi,

I don't know knetworkmanager. I wrote kwlan primarily because I didn't knew any gui for kde supporting wpa / wpa2.

I don't mind kwlan to be merged into knetworkmanager, if the developers think that makes sense.

Hi,

I had a look at knetworkmanager - looks nice.

What's missing for me is ability to use static ip addresses. I don't know whether knetworkmanager developers plan to implement it.

I am working on a "wireless-auto", meaning connect to any available unencrypted network. It will take some time though.

Maybe I'll add configuration for wired nics too, but I am not sure yet.

However, the idea to integrate dialup networks (including dsl) is interesting. I'll think about that.

Regards,

Tom.

Not my screenshots, but it's Crystal (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=13969). The transpareny can be disabled, and it's highly configurable.

 KWlan saved my day

 
 by Firetech on: Jun 28 2006
 
Score 50%

Just wanted to say that KWlan solved all my WPA2-PSK problems (couldn't get it to work properly, and wpa_gui was no help, maybe because of update_config not being set in wpa_supplicant.conf...)
Now my WPA2-PSK-CCMP 802.11g-WLAN works perfectly, and I even replaced KWifiManager with KWlan in the system tray :D
Keep up the good work! :)

(I have some issues with the WLAN not reconnecting after resuming from suspend/hibernate, but that's easily solved by bringing down the interface, restarting wpa_supplicant (I start it with an init.d script), and bringing up the interface again.)

Hi,

I know about the hibernation problem. It seems to be a problem with wpa_supplicant. Stopping and starting it is the only workaround until now. You do not need to bring the interface down.

Hmm, that's right :)
With 0.4.7, my wired connection also works way better :D
It didn't seem to want to get an IP address by itself before, athough that might have been me being impatient... I would like a way to disable interface icons in the system tray, though. (OkOk, it's still alpha/beta, but I'm giving some feedback.)

I compiled the latest version of kwlan using automake-1.9 (instead of the default automake-1.7) in Fedora Core 5 and installed it. Whenever I run it (from konsole or from the menu) nothing happens... no errors, no gui, nothing. Any ideas?

Hi,

no idea without more information :-)

When you start it from the command line, do you get any output?

If so, please provide it to me, maybe I can find a hint on what's going on.

Hi,

that can happen if kwlan does not find any network interface (I need to code a warning for that).

Can you please provide me the output of kwlan when it's started from the command line and the output of "ifconfig -a"?

Thanks.

There's a few issues, if you run it as root you can see a message, and it will show up in the tray, but no longer as a user or sudo. The main issue is that Fedora compiles Wireless Extensions with version 20 and this app only supports up to version 19. I'm presuming other Bleeding Edge distros will have the same issue:

[root@aurora ~]# kwlan
Link points to "/tmp/ksocket-root"

Same problem here. Works with root only. However until it is possible to bypass iwlist for scanning and connect to hidden AP's I will continue my search for a wireless connection manager. KNetworkManager allows this.

Ooops, spoke to soon. wpa_supplicant handles hidden ssid's very well. Now to figure out getting visual of Kwlan as normal user, sudo not working either unless I'm doing something wrong in the instance. Thanks

No, I don't get any type of output when I run it from konsole. It just returns to the prompt:

I hadn't seen the other replies to my message. I tried running it as root, here's the output:

No GUI comes up. Here's the output of "ifconfig -a":

Hi,

I that's strange, I cannot reproduce it here (I start kwlan as normal user). however, since version 0.5.1 ther is a separate kwlan icon which should show up in any case - even if kwlan does not find any interface.

Can you please tell me if the problem persists with this version?

Thanks.

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.
