KWiFiManager iconKWiFiManager 3.5.10

Configure and monitor your wireless LAN PC-Cards under Linux/KDE
With the application KWiFiManager you can configure and monitor your wireless LAN PC-Cards under Linux/KDE. The application is made for KDE version 3.x only.

The simplest way to compile this package is:

1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute`configure' itself.

Running `configure' takes a while. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.

2. Type `make' to compile the package.

3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with the package.

4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.

5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came with the distribution.

Main features:

  • The "Scan for networks..." button now allows you to switch to the networks it has discovered. This works even for WEP encrypted networks, you can enter the WEP key in the results window
  • The system tray icon is now transparent so that it fits nicely into arbitrary kicker skins. It has also been brushed up a little so that the numbers should never be so large that they obscure parts of the icon or become unreadable.
  • A tooltip that tells the currently connected SSID has been added to the system tray icon
  • The control center module attempts to auto-detect if you entered a hexadecimal or string key
  • Interface selection is now done per config, not globally in order to support more than one interface. It defaults to auto-detection to make things easier if only one interface is present
