Description:

!!! KWireless renamed to KWlanInfo !!!
A renaming of kwireless was necessary to avoid an name conflict with kdenetwork3-kwireless.

KWlanInfo provides some information about wlan interfaces.

It's a kicker applet and so you must start it with a right click on a empty space in the kicker panel and then add it. At time it only works proper, if the wlan interface is set to "managed" mode (Access point).

Meanwhile it's tested with many wlan cards and distributions, but some wlan drivers do not set wlan statistics proper and so you get wrong data displayed.




Changelog:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
KWireless renamed because there's a conflict with a standard kwireless-applet in KDE. The new name is now KWlanInfo
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

0.9.4
Improvements:
- Opening info window does not appear in taskbar
- Min/Max indicators on bars in info window to see best and worst values of a connection
- Tooltip window for each bar shows full bar name and level (usefull if bar text to small or truncated)

0.9.3
Errors removed:
- Header files missing on some systems
- Nickname and ESSID on some systems not correctly displayed or kwlaninfo crashed

0.9.2
Error removed:
- Nickname and ESSID sometimes not updated

0.9.1
Errors removed:
- Header file error (wireless.h not found on some systems)
- Bars in info window have now the same colors like bars in applet

Behavior improved:
- info window on mouse over event now always on top
- if text to big for bar view, it will be truncated and not removed like in older versions

0.9.0b
Reimplementation of some code:
There are no longer depencies to any extern files or programs (e.g. /proc/net/wireless, ifconfig ...).

0.8.3
Some compilation errors, program crashes on newer systems (KDE 3.2 + gcc 3.3) removed. Sorry, inadvertance of the programmer ;-)).

0.8.2
All regular expressions in QString changed to standard string functions, so you should be able to compile kwlaninfo with Qt >= 3.x
Following bug in KDE-3.2 fixed: info window shown in klwaninfo applet widget

0.8.1
Size of kwlaninfo now configurable. You can choose following modes (preferences dialog):
normal: ratio height:width = 1:2
condensed: ratio height:width = 1:1
ultra condensed: ratio height:width = 2:1

You can now choose when info bar shall be visible. Following modes are availible (preferences dialog):
Mouseover: info bar will be visible if you move mouse pointer over kwlaninfo
Double Click: info bar is visible on a double click on kwlaninfo
(in both modes info bar is hidden if mouse pointer leaves kwlaninfo)

infobar shows graphical signal strength too

bar text will be removed if it's to big for the view

type selection in preferences dialog removed

0.8
KWlanInfo applet still runs even of missing or removing wlan card.
In this case it displays an error and in a tooltip (mouse over kwlaninfo applet) it shows an error message.
If card will be inserted it shows the normal bar view again.

0.7.2
Redesign of the source code
IP address in info window added
Danish translation added (thanks to the translator "Frederik Dannemare")

0.7.1
Compiling error using qt version < 3.2 removed
Compiling of kwireless requires now only qt version >= 3.1

0.7:
Info window shows now wlan settings like ESSID, Access Point ...
German translation included.
Following bug removed:
The info window was possibly not displayed correct (out of screen), if kicker panel or kwireless changed their position. Now the position of info window is correctly calculated.

0.6-release-2:
An error occurs while opening preferences in Version 0.6. Now opening preferences works correct.
Further you need Qt Version 3.2.3 or higher.

0.6:
"Type" in preferences dialog is reserved for future use.
Customizing of kwireless improved (see preferences dialog).
Following features added:
- setting of font and font color
- setting own bar colors for different levels.
- setting level values for changing the bar colors

0.6-pre:
Calculation of bar text size improved. On mouseEnter event a info window is shown.

0.5.1:
While setting up preferences first time the "Procfile" value was empty. Now it's initial value is set to "/proc/net/wireless"

 German umlauts?

 
 by EliasP on: Mar 16 2004
 
Score 50%

There seems to be a problem with German "umlauts".
Instead of "Qualität" (Quality), "Qualit??t" is displayed in the applett.
In the popup, there are two squares insted of one "ä".

Maybe it's the same bug, which caused licq to display umlauts incorrect?

Look here for a patch which helped to get this problem solved for licq.
http://www.sjaensch.org/licq1.2.7-qt3.3-sprintf.patch

Greetings

This is not a bug. I've edited the german po file with wrong encoding. Sorry, I'll put the correct mo file to kwlaninfo's home next days.

Please tell me the location of "wireless.h" on your system (normally it should be in /usr/include). May be it's in /usr/include/linux, in this case make a link in /usr/include. I also need your Linux distro and kernel version.

Just change in ../kwlaninfo-0.9.0b/src/kwlaninfo.h this line:
#include <wireless.h> to #include <linux/wireless.h>
so you don't have to change the location or make a link to this file.
Please report also on success.

Hi,

I wonder what are the differences between this and kwirelessmonitor? Why do both exist?

Furthermore, there is something called 'kifi' in kdenonbeta which seems to do what this tool and the other do.

I've not tried any of them, but 3 separate apps with 1 already being in a position to transition to the a real kde module (kdenonbeta -> kdenetwork) seems a bit over whelming.

I made the changes and it compiles now. However, it doesn't give the correct readings for my PrismGT card. It takes one reading (which is usually wrong) and then doesn't update again when it is set to update every second. For the last 5 min it has shown my signal as 54 dbm, my noise as 52 dbm, and my quality at 95%. This can't be right, especially when iwconfig gives different numbers. Thanks for the help.

That's my iwconfig (I hid my encryption key). At the time I took that the applet showed 0 in all three bars. It also did not show my essid. My KDE is 3.2.3. QT is 3.3.2. I'm running Gentoo x86_64 with a 2.6.7 kernel. My wireless card is from Compex (PrismGT chipset) and I'm using the prism54 drivers compiled into the kernel and the latest firmware for the card.

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.
