VSWM - Very Simple Wireless Manager

As the name suggests it manages the wireless network in a very simplistic way. This version have wifi WPA and WEP, with dhcp and static networks. To use it, just place the vswm.cfg file at /etc/ and add there your existing networks. When you call the script (without any argument) it will scan the available networks and connect you to the first available network that appears on the cfg file.


VSWM can be found at GitHub A ZIP file can be found on the link Replace master with the a version number (e.g.: 0.1) to get an specific version.


cp vswm /usr/local/bin/
cp vswm.cfg /etc/

Make sure /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH. Copy the following line into your .bashrc file (or /etc/bashrc, or /etc/profile)

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

Reload the .bashrc

source ~/.bashrc

Finally, edit /etc/vswm.cnf to include information about your networks.


sudo vswm

It will make the script read the /etc/vswm.cfg file and connect to an available network listed there, if any.
