Hi april,

I am assuming you clicked the icon to bring up 'ipinfo' after you killed the modem (it's showing the IP address). If so this is almost certainly a bug with the driver.

Can you try one test for me please to confirm this?

While the modem is off and the icon is still showing, open a terminal and run this command please:
Code:
ifconfig wlan0


If the IP address appears on the second line then there is not much I can do to fix the icon behaviour for you. If not then we proceed.

'ifconfig' is a mature program, part of the 'wireless-tools' suite of programs.

Thanks.

# ifconfig wlan0
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:9E:95:9C:4D:1F
inet addr:192.168.0.4 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:10192465 (9.7 MiB) TX bytes:3084772 (2.9 MiB)

So I take it the driver is not disconnecting from the modem when it is switched off .At least then it tells me when I am properly connected.

It appears that way. Leave it at that for now and I'll do some investigating.

Thanks for testing.

I would like to have a look through the source code for netmon_wce and network_tray.
How would I get those ? The package manager does not find them

Yes apart from april's issue, which seems to be one off.

Note, that there is a patch for non puppy builds tested by mikeb. You might want to change the message app to something that suits you.

With the wifi strength indicator, I miss having an activity indication....

A nice to have enhancement might be to make the strength indicator change colour (subtly - maybe just a different shade of green) in response to activity?

Cheers

PostPosted: Wed 30 Sep 2015, 02:33    Post subject: Setting lost after reboot  

The

enable wireless device polling

setting is not maintained through a reboot for me. Should it be? Where is it stored?

Later............just read the README in the source:
Quote:
The program now has wireless polling off by default, toggled in the right click
menu. There is a mechanism whereby you can start the program in wireless polling
mode from a symlink to the exec named "netmon_wpoll" (or rename the exec). If you
do this then edit the .desktop file or the symlink in /root/Startup must be
name "netmon_wpoll".

Perhaps 2 desktop files could be provided - one enabled and one disabled and the right click menu could toggle them??

No, that's a bit silly but a config file in $HOME isn't. I'll think about that, bearing in mind that I want this to stay out of the way. That was the whole point - wireless support was a bonus. Smile

Hi Mick

Sorry about that Peter, typo in my script to package Laughing Embarassed . I'm a bit surprised it took so long to turn up.

Anyway.. try this experimental source code. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the new icons and their functionality.

By the way, the Makefile supports DESTDIR (always has).

SOURCE removed. Updated source is on the front page. Note there are no changes, except for the patch and some superficial stuff that won't affect puppy users if they compiled from the source that was posted here.

Looks AOK here...........

Mine shows 4 green bars and one (tallest and furthest to the right) is not green.
And at the bottom it says Wifi stats disabled.

How can I get mine to look like yours, with the Wireless strength 55% at the bottom?

Lucid Puppy 5.2.8.7 Super2

Thanks,
Sheldon

@sheldonisaac - check the right click menu. For persistence then it has to be called as 'netmon_wpoll'. Depending on how it is started on your system, make a symlink from /usr/bin/netmon_wce to /root/Startup/netmon_wpoll or edit /root/.config/autostart/netmon_wce.desktop changing the 'Exec=' line to netmon_wpoll.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The new 2.7 pets and source are posted. Changelog is updated.

See main post.

NOTE: the pinstall.sh is removed so if you are migrating from Barry's old network_tray you'll have to delete the startup files manually. If installing in an old puppy you will have to unpack and install manually as all pets are XZ compressed in woof-ce. Also, if starting from /root/Startup you'll have to do that manually too.
