PostPosted: Thu 20 Oct 2016, 02:09    Post subject:  "Network Wizard Mods" - fix scan for usb dongle,
Subject description: allows multiple interfaces and fixes start-up issues for D-Link N600 WiFi Dongle
 

two small mods noted to "Network Wizard" in tahrpup

- Download the attachment
- Extract it
- copy rc.network to /etc/rc.d

Some background is given in the the thread:
rc.network::run_iw_scan sleep time too short ]rc.network::run_iw_scan sleep time too short


My mods are noted in the comments at lines 58 to 60
Code:

# 19oct16#1 s243a: Comment out 25feb10 update (ln#659 http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=928022#928022)
# 19oct16#2 s243a: Increase delay between iwscans


and referenced again (e.g. 19oct16#1) where the change is made.

The modifications make it so:
1, my D-link N600 USB dongle connects on boot and also
2. allows me to connect to multiple interfaces at once.

My impression is that this is legacy maintenance because iwlist seems unreliable to me. Also I think that it can be replaced by WPA_suplicant but at this point I'm only guessing as I am far from a linux networking expert.

So I just checked how it worked on start-up.

(post section deleted)

Edit: after fixing an unrelated problem "see below" it works.

Ether 6.0.2 or 6.0.5. I don't think it matters because I don't think this file was changed between these two versions.

edit: I was previously having an unrelated problem of the hard-wired interface getting set to the wrong subnet. This was completely unrelated to my above modifications to rc.network and was instead due to me previously setting the ip address it in a start-up script for shareinternet.pet.

I commented out the lines of this startup script for now as I am currently not using the shareinternet.pet on this computer.
