ReactOS now supports WLAN cards!

Post by vicmarcal » Wed Jan 18, 2012 4:51 am

Cgutman has been working really hard in the WLAN support, and now ReactOS is able to connect to OPEN and WEP wifi networks. In both Ad-hoc and Infrastructure mode.

Now he is looking at WPA(2) but it'd be cool to begin testing our WLAN cards covered of dust! :)

You have just to use the wlanconf tool to configure the WLAN adapter,but before you will need to install the XP driver of the card.

"wlanconf -c <SSID>" connects to an infrastructure network. Adding the "-a" option connects to (or creates) an ad-hoc network. Adding "-w <WEP>" will enable WEP encryption using the supplied key.
"wlanconf -s" will scan and display a list of the surrounding networks and various attributes like signal strength, SSID, BSSID, network mode, and supported rates
"wlanconf" will display the current WLAN configuration details if the adapter is connected

The DHCP service will detect network changes and refresh its state accordingly when associating with a new wireless network

A new record for necroposting here... wow, the link in OP is still cia.vc...

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.
