Hi all,

This is what i have found after a bit of research about WAG

The wag config does not appear to work with the line:

CUSTOMSCRIPT="mozilla"

when i deleted this line and left MODDATA="ndiswrapper" and loaded the windows driver (after installing pearl from pupget) it worked. so here is my wag config file.

MODDATA="ndiswrapper"

CARDSOC="0"

My profile-config is

TITLE1="home"
IP=""
GATEWAY=""
ESSID="[your network]"
NWID="[your network]"
KEY="##########################"
MODE="managed"
FREQ=""
CHANNEL="0"
AP_MAC=""

TITLE2="template"
IP="192.168.0.3"
GATEWAY=""
ESSID="hotspot"
NWID=""
KEY=""
MODE="Managed"
FREQ="2.437G"
CHANNEL=""
AP_MAC=""
You need MODDATA to load the driver. This is using 128 bit WEP
I do not know why this line creates a problem but it does with my system. This was using a BELKIN wireless card with a laptop.

Regards
Michael

Thank you, I'll take that into account while working on the next network wizard version.

I am adding wireless configuration. The profiles portion will be shared with WAG and I've added a Graphical interface instead of manual editing of the files.

After analyzing where the network wizard and WAG intersect and where they differ, I found that WAG shows more wireless status information. Other than that it's the same functionality.

I would appreciate if you can try the latest iteration of the network wizard and tell me if it works for you.

One of the differences with what you did is that instead of editing the MODDATA parameter you will do the following:

- Select to Load driver
- Select "Specify a custom driver"
- Type ndiswrapper. (I am hoping to add automatic ndiswrapper configuration in the near future).

I would strongly reccommend you DO NOT erase the CUSTOMSCRIPT line. You're not supposed to erase the line, just null it out.
CUSTOMSCRIPT=""

Its just a mozilla launch button (silly and pointless, I know), but I'll look into why it fails.

i retyped the line and editited it out as you suggest, i lost wireless connection until i removed it again!

I know it only creates a button but it stops my system working.
