How to change between networks with wifi


Hello,

RH9 and hostap running my wifi card. Nightly I drag my laptop home with me. What is the easiest way to switch between networks without having to manually edit my essid wep keys and dns server?

Right now, I boot, wait for the card to time out (or go through the annoyance of interactive startup) then I have to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts wlan0 for the correct essid and wep key, then change to terminal, go to /etc and edit resolv.conf for the correct dns.

There has to be a better way.

Putz.

I've used KwifiManager in the past, and it supports profiles so you can just switch between different configurations.

Hope that helps.
