I have added a new script to the ones provided by Guylhem in 1.0rc4 (just added wep stuff to net.wifi.local).

This one is to connect to a WEP enabled network.


STEP BY STEP GUIDE:

1) Download and unpack attached script (net.wifi.wep)
2) Change network setup on lines 3 to 24
3) On the Zaurus' console become root:
su <enter>
When asked for password, press <enter>.
4) Copy the file to the Zaurus' /usr/local/bin/
i.e. cp /mnt/cf/net.wifi.wep /usr/local/bin
5) Define script perms:
chown root:qpe /usr/local/bin/net.wifi.wep
chmod 0755 /usr/local/bin/net.wifi.wep


To CONNECT:
net.wifi.wep

To DISCONNECT:
net.wifi.off

Optional:
You can edit /etc/resolv.conf to match the DNS servers provided by your ISP. Some may find that name resolution is faster that way

I have checked this setup just after a fresh NAND restore so I hope everyone is able to connect this time wink.gif.

FIX: Sometimes wep keys do not get loaded by wlanctl-ng. Waiting a little bit more and setting up WEP keys after bringing up the network interface makes a big difference.

I have updated the attached script.

Hello

If the script is fixed, I'd be happy to include it in the rc5.

Could the ones would had problems (jimjimboblim, etc...) tell me if the latest update of the script has fixed thier problems?

I don't want to enable wep on my ap to test that and break my net connection :-)
