Pwireless scanner and WPA support?
First off, let me say that after becoming increasingly frustrated with the sluggishness of Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mandriva on my Thinkpad T41, I decided to download Puppy 4.1.1 and I'm thrilled with it. I'm very much a minimalist and those other distributions never really fit my "personality" and beliefs. Puppy is great!
Okay, now to my question/issue. I'm quickly learning how to use the wireless configuration tool. It works very well but I don't always know what the ESSID is so wireless scanner would be ideal. I meet with clients at a lot of public places that offer wifi. I found in the menu the wireless scanning tool, Pwireless. This is exactly what I'm looking for. The only issue is that it doesn't appear to support WPA encryption. At my house, I can see about 10 wireless connections, most of which are open and a lot are recognized as using WEP, including my connection. The problem is that my home connection is using WPA. Is there a way to set WPA encryption with this tool? If not, is there a way to download and install something like wlassistant that, I believe, supports WPA encryption?
Thanks for your help. I'm very enjoying this VERY fast distribution. It might even resurrect my older Thinkpad T30.
