hello plinej,
did it bit by bit, echo ..
grep cell ->
Code:
                    Channel:6

Code:
grep "(Channel "

this is where it breaks, as you're looking for a bracket that doesn't exist in my output.
thanks and hope it helps

Okay, I'll use grep to only have numbers in the results.

grep -o [0-9] should work. I'll package up 0.3.3 in a minute.

--edit--

Okay it needs to be this:

grep -o [0-9][0-9]*

since it may or may not be a double digit channel.

Thanks for the feedback. 2 digit channels are showing up fine for me so I would imagine with my revised line of code they should work fine for you.

hello plinej
as promised tried out other wifi stick.. sorry bad news follows
looks like one of these buggy sticks!
wifi usb stick -> hercules HWGUSB2-54 usb2 54mb/s and it uses module ->rt2570 -> rausb0
# looks like there's a bug in "iwconfig essid" or the module, read on :
i'm using a HIDDEN 7 character essid, if i type in rxtv
Code:
ifconfig rausb0 up
iwconfig rausb0 essid "1234567" channel 6 mode managed key off
iwconfig

the iwconfig ESSID = "123456" but it should be ESSID = "1234567"
it's missing the last character (nber 7) of the ESSID,
my fix -> add a space after the LAST character of essid, this works for me.
Code:
iwconfig rausb0 essid "1234567 " channel 6 mode managed key off


Complication for your program : This stick outputs most of it's usefull info with the iwconfig command.

iwconfig command output :
rausb0 RT2500USB WLAN ESSID:"xxxxxxx" Nickname:""
Mode:Managed Frequency=2.412 GHz
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level:-120 dBm Noise level:57 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

on start Pwireless 0.5 displays correctly Hidden/essid

Added a profile for my hidden essid
in the profile window :
1st box is for iwconfig commands -> it does NOT display the interface(device) or mode variable
2nd box is for dhcpcd -> it does NOT display the interface(device) variable

so even if i add them in and save the profile, it forgets them upon pwireless restart
Quote:
pwireless-1-IWCONFIG -> iwconfig essid "xxxxxxx " channel 6 ap key off bit auto rate auto txpower auto (no interface/device after iwconfig and no mode variable)
Pwireless-dhcp -> dhcpcd (no interface/device after command)

If i manually type the commands in rxtv the stick works fine.
i'm using it now !
sorry about this

No need for an apology, I appreciate you testing this. What would really help me out is if you could send me all of your Pwireless files in /tmp/. Just tar or zip them up and attach them to a PM to me.

hello plinej,
been digging... Toutou 2.17+X, man this stick doesn't like it..
used connection wizard to configure the stick, then rebooted -> hanged Toutou on boot
looks like, etc/rausb0wireless (ifconfig & iwconfig commands) and etc/rausb0mode (dhcpcd command) don't run one after the other as they should.
1st major bug -> essid truncated (last character) as explained before, fixed it with extra space.
2nd bug -> seems like dhcpcd tries to run before interface is fully configured.
fixed hang with a few sleeps and 3 iwconfig parameter lines instead of 1 line
still wont autoconnect, but doesn't hang on boot, dhcpcd early problem...
really was a bit off topic but...

Pwireless 0.5 report..
these are my default values just after "add profile" in Pwireless 0.5
Code:
iwconfig essid "" channel ap key ENTER-THE-KEY bit auto rate auto txpower auto
dhcpcd


# there is no "interface variable" after iwconfig and before essid
# dhcpcd has no "interface variable" after it.
# you've got the interface variable correctly "rausb0", shows in Pwireless
# there is no " mode variable" , you can't get it because you don't have the interface variable to retrieve it

Here is the output of my /tmp/Pwireless* files

Pwireless
rausb0 No scan results

Pwireless-device
(my comment, file is empty)
Pwireless-dhcp
dhcp

Pwireless-open
false

Pwireless-ssid
test-pwireless

let me know if you want more info

0.6 is now up

Maddox, this should correctly find your device now. My scripts initially searched for 802.11 in the iwconfig output but I see yours doesn't output that. Instead now it searches for the line with ESSID: to find the device. I also added a "sleep 3" between the iwconfig & dhcpcd commands.
