This update provides a beta of Wifi-ScannerM. The simplest of the three.

Wifi-TrayNet-4.8 fixes and improvements.
1) When randommac is called that is applied and quickreconnect is invoked.
2) Autoconnect functions work properly with variables defined before writing the autoconnect script, instead of within (backtic operations left empty spaces).
3) mac address editor in passwordgui.
4) static ip applied more effectively. I found myself connecting to a router which allowed internet to ip addresses above 100, but allowed lan connection to ips above and below 100. I also found that second attempt to connect to such network with new mac address resulted in correct ip assignment and internet connectivity. First connection would be 192.168.0.105 (no internet) static ip new mac (random mac) gave 192.168.1.105 internet connection.
5) Saved profile connection uses saved static settings.

For the last three days I worked on Wifi-TrayNet function by function. I found some problems and changed things.

Saved profiles function overhauled and much improved. Using yad list and buttons to preview delete edit and customise profiles.

here is the Wifi-TrayNet script only copy yo /usr/sbin/Wifi-TrayNet.

I had to review Wifi-TrayNet functions and code flow. I beleive that now this app has matured and will be easy to use for the majority of users.

On starting with X Scan results are available in the menu for selection of available APs. the app connects to the default profile which is created by the last AP connectiony AP availability is first checked,

Wifi interface is determined and selected automatically; manual selection is available in the menu.

Airplanemode is now checked by any functions trying to use the interface.

profiles are created before connection, and are more easily managed.

There are no additional scripts created, only a symlink to either /etc/xdg/Startup or /root/Startup if the menu >Toggle Start with Xs selected.

The code no longer uses 'tr' to convert @ to ", rather backslashes are used to escape each item along with 'echo -e' (seems inedfficient to me).

The menu has fewer options exposed to the user. So too the password entry gui.

Just testing a bit more.

This works well on FD800 fd721 DebianDog and upupbb.

Testing feedback appreciated.

The password/user entry gui has 11 input fields, from left to right and down.

Password and User id fields are auto-greyed out according to authentication types.

AP selected shows the ssid of AP selected from tray menu. The mac address of the selected AP is shown in the ReSelect AP field. Selecting the down arrow shows all available APs found, select one and click ok to change selected AP.

dhcpc editor shows the udhcpc and dhcpcd strings used for acquiring the ip address from the AP.

Config editor (geany/leafpad) if selected opens selected AP/profile with selected text editor.

Profiles selector, shows saved profiles and selects matching AP with saved profile. If visible, the shown profile will be connected even if password and /or user id has been entered. To create a new profile with updated password/id blank line in the profiles field, enter password/id and click ok.

Driver field for wpa_supplicant. Use wired for ethernet connection, selecting or inputting the network device in the interface field.v Or use wext for wireless devices.

Static ip set, field with examples...for advanced set-ups.

$int mac, shows your hardware mac address. Edits to this mac address will be applied.

Field 12 is a button, that brings up the NetworkBlocks presets in case of editing the Profile or connection config (netsel/qrc/default).

New version with working bluetooth utility. Now has command input and execution.

There is a roaming function which doesn't work properly, so please ignore it for now.

AP names in the tray menu are limited to display 17 characters.
