    Bonjour Shaman,

    Je ne parle pas francais tres bien parce que je suis American! Mais, le boujolais nouveau est arrivee!

    Anyway, I am still in Noob territory but even after much googling, I can not find the wlanassistant 0.5.7 to download.

    Can you point me in the right direction?

    Merci,

    Alacrity

    Default WPA Supplicant

    Here is the one I used.


    hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant/
    Check out the READ ME section for installing....

    backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php?title=Howto:Module_Source
    Here are some details from MUTS on installing source to Module. This really helped me...

    google (wlan assistant 0.5.7 slackware package tgz)

    after you get tgz package

    tgz2lzm module.tgz module.lzm

    no need to build from source with a tgz package in order to get a module

    Hmmmmm.

    Not too much luck.

    Found: wpa_supplicant-0.5.7-i486-1

    On this site: http://packages.slackware.it/

    Was not lucky on google with the original content: wlan assistant 0.5.7 slackware package tgz

    Were you successful with a google en francais? Let me know and I will download from a French web site if necessary.

    Sorry for the difficulty....I wonder why this tgz is so difficult to find?

    I am presently using the w.sh script which works for wpa_supplicant but assumed the wlan assistant 0.5.7 would make the wpa process easier via GUI. Maybe I am misunderstanding your post.

    Merci,

    Alacrity

    ust dl this slackware package

    http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourc...5.7-i386-1.tgz

    copy it to a temp dir
    cd to this dir

    for a real hd install
    tar -xvf wlassistant-0.5.7-i386-1.tgz
    it will create 2 dirs called "install" and "usr" dir
    copy paste the "usr" dir onto the root of filesystem, when asked click overwrite all ...

    for a usb or cd live install
    tgz2lzm wlassistant-0.5.7-i386-1.tgz wlassistant-0.5.7-i386-1.lzm
    new module created just put it in modules dir..


    now start wlanassistant, yeah !!! we see the wpa flag and new options available.... new version is now installed.....

    My French is not very good so in English...

    I stand in your shadow.

    or

    You are my guru

    or

    Vous ete l'homme!

    I finally found via google the download by shifting terms. By the way, although the new wlasssitant shows wpa, it still is hesitating to pop in for me. Had to use my wpa script to finally click in. I will try different types of wpa from the wireless router/AP to see if one works better than the other with the new wlanassistant.

    Thanks again for you final help.

    Alacrity

    EDIT: Found that the wlassistant required HEX only ... not ASCII password for WPA-PSK to work.
