Setting up a wireless device in a live-cd environment can be very tedious and repetitive. While Archie's rootnest option does allow you to keep and load your own custom configs I think a nice wlan net detection and connection tool could be a lot more user friendly, especially for non-Arch Archie users.
I know Vector just included wifi-radar on their live-cd but, in my experience, that can't actually detect new networks, only those that are pre-configured. Anyone know a nice little GUI app that can detect and provide easy connection? Preferably it will be purely QT or gtk2 based.
I guess a combination of homenest and wifi-radar would be better than a kick in the nuts though
if my memory is not too bad wifi radar detects everything only when correctly connected to one network otherwise see nothing
maybe this only happened to me and time have past without using it
I don't know if Archie's kernel is SMP or not, but it makes a lot of things easier with wireless drivers not to use SMP.
