WLAN GUI tools.


Is there any GUI tools for configuring WLAN, scanning available networks and managing WiFi profiles? I know, I should use iwconfig, but sometimes I just want to do things quick 'n dirty.

I didn't like RaConfig since it disables the usage of iwconfig and for some reason, it didn't store the profiles.

I need it to support WPA, or atleast let me manually configure iwpriv. I also don't want it to be dependent on KDE or GNOME libraries.
