I'm trying to find a wireless management gui tool that I can use with my clients' laptops. Kwifimanager does not work on these systems, and I have been unable to get NetworkManager to compile. Any ideas, or has anyone gotten one of these programs to work well on Slackware (10.2, 2.6.13)?
yes - i am yet to get any of these apps to work properly.. i can be connected to a LAN fine and transferring data and kwifi indicates that card is idle... I think i have since uninstalled it as i thought it sucked =)
kinternet seems to be suse-specific...couldn't find any sources
So I tried wlassistant first and BINGO, it works. Lightweight, install was effortless (just needed to symlink one library), on launch it automatically (and accurately) found the networks around me. Connecting and disconnecting to networks actually worked, too, including encrypted ones. This looks promising!
I haven't taken the time yet to install Wifi-Radar, but I will eventually.
