Wireless Networking with KWiFiManager


Article from Issue 52/2005

Connecting to wireless networks is

more popular than ever. KDE’s KWiFi-

Manager is a handy tool for monitoring

and managing wireless connections.

Wireless networks are a very

valuable addition to modern

day computing. Wireless technology

makes it easy to set up the network,

and users can get online from a

growing number of places, including

pubs, train stations, libraries, and airports.

Although a wireless network is physically

easier to install than a wired network,

the software side of a wireless network

is frequently harder to configure.

For instance, for each wireless network

connection, you must select the correct

network name – commonly referred to

as SSID (Service Set Identifier) – and you

must specify whether to use encryption.

If you are using encryption with the connection,

you must specify the right WEP

(Wired Equivalent Privacy) key. KDE’s

KWiFiManager utility helps you manage

these and other wireless network settings

and also monitors your wireless

network connections.
