hi,

tried OZ/GPE on my 6000L after a long time and very impressed with its progress. but some issues remain for me:

1. can the wifi be configured via the GUI? or is it command line only? i have an WEP encrypted network at home.

2, missing portabase on the GPE. this is something i use daily. other stuff of regular use ( iqnotes, FBReader, pdf, freenote, kapi) all seem to be available.

thanks in advance,

/bazmi.

I'm prety new in GPE. I've got a sl-5500 with a WCF12 wifi card. I use an applet called "wireles lan control" it can scan for networks and when yo find the one you are looking for tap on it for a while untill a menu apears and there ad the all the data needed to conect. Close tha dialog, tap again and on the menue pres "try to conect". It worked for me, dont know if its the same wis sl-6000 with built in wifi.

I found I had to turn on the wifi adaptor on my 6000 before the applet would allow configuration... I added that to the OZ wiki.

The gui for gpe does not understand the wlan-ng that controls the built-in USB wifi card. I am working on getting wlanfe or wlanfe2 to compile and run on my 6k but it has not happoned yet. I understand that OPIE maybe able to control the internal WIFI but I have not test this myself(I may do that this week just to see if the usb0 problem happons on opie with 2.6 and 2.4 kernel).

This is on my list of things that need to be done to get OZ/GPE working on sl-6k so hopefully we will get someone modify the current network tool to add an option of wlan-ng wifi cards or get a wifi program that work just for the wlan-ng interface.

Hi,
the gui for GPE will configure wlan0, BUT, it will only do so when it's already active (so I say "duh" to the lack of testing).

if you use "usbctl 1 on" so wlan0 appears you can then use the network config panel.

see the other thread on the OZ/common for some things you can do to make life easier when running 3.5.4.1 rc with kernel 2.6:
