Hello all ,
First post here ...
As I move for work from one place to another , I was tired to have to launch various scripts manually .
So I wrote a script to connect to various wireless networks at boot time ...
The script has been written for Slackware , but can be used with any distro .
Maybe this lack of some explanation ...
The script is intented for use when you need to connect to differente networks ...
net 1 ) wap , essid mywap , password mywappass , use dhcp
net 2 ) wep , essid mywep , password myweppass , statip ip 192.168.0.x , gw 192.168.0.x , dns 212.212.212.x
net 3 ) wap , essid hidden , passwd anotherpass , static ip 192.168.2.x , etc
When you boot the pc ( probably a laptop
) , the script launch a scan for available networks ,
and if it finds a match for an essid in the conf file , or a mac address in case of a hidden essid ,
it connects to that network .
In the next post ,I'll write the link to it , seems it's not permitted in the first one
