    OLD Wifi Manager - No longer supported

    heres a script that will create some labels, containing the information from a wifi connection if established, it works pretty good in my old dell laptop. i might do some more with this code later on, but this version is to see if it works good enough for more people.

    Current Version ** Beta 0.6 **
    thanks to jonhWPB for hes valuable help in this little guy, some issues were fixed and added. (labels Bug, signal Label percentage).and ini builder.

    Current Version ** Beta 1.5 **
    added some more features, skin code changed from custom labels to variables, for compatibility issues. save/navigate hotspot features. more info in "README.TXT file"
    combined all in a single script,

    i'll upload a skin example soon,with all features.

    Wow, nice little plugin! Will fit nicely into any skin to give you information on your connection and such! great work!

    EDIT: I "Graved" it for the "Some Tools" link. You show all the labels in the readme.txt file, but you did not include a sample skin for the button code for "Connect", "Refresh" ect....

    john, the picture above is from my wireless skin, it has the native windows wireless network connection manager embedded. without all the trash not needed, thats why it looks like that. this script is just for the labels only, but if you want the script to slim down the connection manager let me know.is really simple.

    Sure! that would be great, The way you are displaying it embedded, I thought that was part of the package Looks nice with out all the crap in there you do not need.

    With that script, I guess the button codes would be needed as well, to see what command and how you are passing them to the AI script and such. Prob just the script and skin file would be all thats needed to figure it out.

    Ok, got a chance to start messing with this tonight. Seems like it is partially working.... Not sure what it could be....

    When I first go to the test skin, I get the information mostly populated:



    After the default 3 second refresh, in the .ini, all of the fields turn to "Not". It's like it is seeing the information when first run, then loses it on the refresh. Also not sure why the 2 bottom labels are showing Not on the first run:
    CUSTOM_WIFI_WEPS "Shows The WEP Mode"
    CUSTOM_WIFI_CHANNEL "Shows The Channel Used"

    as I am using a WEP key, and there definitely should be channel, as I am connected



    Is this something that I am doing wrong here?

    BTW, great work on this, can't wait to get it all working right, as this will definitely come in handy when Ahem.... driving around

    Nice! This is embedding the window nicely in place, and removing all the extra stuff.

    I am still having a problem with the labels though, they appear populated 5 seconds after the skin loads (Shows connection name, speed, and so forth), then after another 5 second or so all the labels then change to "NOT CONNECTED/DETERMINED".

    I am not sure where to look to see what's causing the labels to lose the values that were correctly populated when it was first ran.

    EDIT:

    Ok found a small error when looking at the code:

    Code:
     $wifiAdapter =IniRead(@scriptdir&'\wifi_man.ini', 'SETTINGS', 'adapter', '')
     $pause=IniRead(@scriptdir&'\wifi_man.ini', 'SETTINGS', 'puase', '5000')
    In the 2nd line "pause" is spelled "pUAse" and not getting the value from the .ini, and not sure what the extra '5000' is there on the end of the line is for.

    RR also seems to have a hard time grabbing the window. Most of the time the wireless window appears behind RR. I have to click the window name in the Task Bar, to make it appear. This has it "out of focus" or something, as the buttons on the skin do not send the commands to the wireless window.

    Also, for some reason removing the handles for some of the items do not work consistently, as you can see from the screen cap.

    Here is a screen cap of what I mean about the fields losing their populated value's after the screen is open for a few seconds.
    Notice the "Connection Type", and Connection Speed" do not lose their information. This at least shows that it is getting the information.

    By the way, this is all just stuff I have found, and hopefully is helping you. I am NOT trying to pick on the work you have put into this in any way! This is a fantastic addition to any skin, and am grateful for your work on it!
