    Default Wireless Assistant causes BT3 to freeze

    I'm running BT3 on a virtual machine and on occasion, when I'm using Wireless Assistant, BT3 will freeze completely. I cannot even move the mouse. All I can do is reset the virtual machine. It freezes about 3 out of 10 times, the other 7 times everything works perfectly. I don't know if this is a widely known bug but I didn't see anything about it... Anybody have a solution or workaround (besides not using it...)? Or at least some input here?

    I'm using Wireless Assistant 0.5.7 that comes with BT3 if it helps any

    A day late and a few dollars short.

    Yes it is widely known, and there are probably 3.67 million threads on it here.

    Code:
    root@BT# insert wireless commands here

    See above

    Again just use the command line and it should work no problemo.

    I hate having to configure everything manually and before I found out about Network Assistant, I had some problems with acquiring an IP address...
    I guess I'll just have to put up with it or write a script... Just wondering, is it known what's actually causing it?

    Yes you can just write a script or switch to bt4 I think the gui networking bit ( whatever it is called) is more reliable.
    As for the cause I do not remember nor do most people really care since it is more reliable and just as easy to use the command line, and or a script that can be enabled at boot.

    Yea, wireless assistant is a piece of crap.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
