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

This is the awesome tool everyone has waited for :)
The other tools like kwifimanager just don´t have this easy "windows-like" setup, and this in linux :)

I hope it will become the standard tool in KDE. Many thanks for developing it!

 radioOff in 0.5.4

 
 by Firetech on: Oct 12 2006
 
Score 50%

At least for my ipw3945 card, the radioOff detection in 0.5.4 doesn't work. device/power/state is always 0... For ipw based cards, you should check device/rf_kill (which is 0 if radio is on, more info at http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/, just search for "rf_kill" on the title page). I would fix this, but I don't have any time to do it. For now, 0.5.3 works fine for me.

Also, I have no bssinfo file, so ESSID and Channel aren't shown. Seems like /sys/class/net isn't following many standards for wireless cards...

Hi,

yes, sys/class does not seem to be standardized. But even iwconfig does not report radio tx power off correctly for all nics. I'll add a configuration option to use ifconfig / iwconfig instead of /sys/class to check interface status in a future version maybe to work around the /sys/class issue - I moved away from iwconfig/iwconfig as it takes more resources than just look into the sys/class files.

 Passphrases?

I'm trying to use kwlan instead of Network Manager to see how I like it, but I can't connect using my wireless network. First of all the scan function doesn't find the network. I tried to manually create the connection / profile, but it keeps telling me it's in the incorrect format. I tried both hex (without any dashes / spaces) and a passphrase, but neither one will take. Am I doing something wrong?

 possible improvement

 
 by kennyX on: Oct 21 2006

Hi,

I love this tool, their are though a couple of things I ran into while using it on vacation.

I would like to have the possiblity to use a single wpa supplicant config file, and be able to restart it with the program. This has to do with the fact that my network interface hops from eth1 to eth2 on boot.

More information about the connecting process could be usefull.

When I'm in a place where I don't know a wireless AP, It try's to connect to the last connected one. And doesn;t really react when I add a new one.

Now for the last thing. When it can't get a dhcp lease it keeps asking me the restart te process even when I say no.

Hi,

pleas have a look at version 0.5.5, it does not try to configure an interface which has no profile defined.

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.
