PWF v4.3 adds a new "quick-connect" function to the Profile page.

Some wireless access points, like WiFi-Direct printers, have the annoying habit of changing their SSID, forcing you to make a new profile with each change. Now you can join the AP just by clicking the Connect button and entering the WPA2 passphrase.

You can also use this feature for a one-time connection to a secure network.


Got it! Downloaded and installed on my newest, a core i5-2520M with an Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter using the ath9k driver. Running LxPupSc 17.07.23 for now. No hitches, no glitches. Took it down to the bike commons to check the new 'quick connect with password, no profile' feature and it works perfectly. The last of my Pentium M stable of laptops have retired and I'm vetting three new to me Fujitsus, two i5 based and one core 2 duo convertible tablet. PWF for all!

Thank you,

Edited: LxPupSc version number corrected
