NetMenu as I call it is at beta.

I have been using it on my touchtablet and laptop this past week. It's easy to use, intuitive and fairly comprehensive for daily use.

PAssword input gui also facilitates using saved profile to connect and also changing selection from the list of found APs, and also the ability to edit the config with geany or leafpad or 'user input', before connection.

Added transmission option in Extra options menu. This adds RX and TX data transmission info as tooltip for 44 seconds before reverting.

Also added very easy static ip address configuration to password gui, in place of delete profiles checkbox.

Also added user activated random mac generator feature to the extra options menu.

Also ironed out several silly bugs.

Apart from some possible improvement with the hotspot function this is about it.

Here is probably the final script. I changed the script name from TrayNet to netmenu.

There was an unused function, namely monitor mode. Monitor mode has now been implemented. Output of the wifi card in monitor mode using
Code:
iw phy phy0 interface add mon0 type monitor
ifconfig mon0 up
iw dev mon0 freq 2412
tcpdump -i mon0 -n | grep Beacon
is displayed usng a yad --text-info pane, with --listen & --tail to scroll to the page bottom as new data flows in. A button is available to clear all data on-the-fly. Frequency to monitor can be set. Filter is set to 'Beacon', to show AP details.

WPS is available with wpa_cli.

Forum member and FatDog developer step PMed me highlighting problems with the script ... thanks for that. So here is a working script, at least on my systems.

Sorry about that for those who downloaded it.

The about function is updated to reflect authorship and usage.

Functions have been reduced, and all functions exported before any scan or menu command is issued.

There is a dependency list infobox using yaf-splash.

The RSSi icon dbm display levels have been adjusted for a more practical representation, although -120 to 0 db is accommodated.

some redirection to /dev/null has been implemented.
Also control of curl after finding external ip.

Starting script in terminal as 'netmenu debug' removes redirection and shows messages in stdout/term.

Needs work.

Previous upload had two 'depsfn' functions ...

Anyway, this has dhcpcd as priority.

Now in the pasword gui, instead of showing AP mac address there is now a dhcpc selector/editor.

Also I was using a '£' symbol for substituing double quotation marks, which then got doubled ... so swapped £ for ? ... and seems to be working fine.

Also when 'wired' driver option is selected no need to create an AP config, so script just jumps to connection command, with wpa_supplicant.

Lastly reduced package down to 144 K

Added a new icon set - red and black for encrypted networks: green and blue for open networks.

I tried to implement airplane mode (rfkill block wlan).

airplane mode 'rfkill block/unblock all' fully operational, with tooltips, tray icon and menu changes as appropriate for each state of airplane mode on/off - activated/de-activated etc.

Also added Quick Re-Connect to menu. This copies the wpa_supplicant AP config file to /tmp/qrc which remeains regardless of all other operations inc 'trap cleanfinish exit', so that the last AP which was involved in a connection attempt, wether successful or not, will be available for 'Quick Re-Connect' function.

The recent icon sets have greater resolution of wifi signal strengths, 9 degrees in fact .... these start from 0-9 db=A/AK.png to 100-129 db=I/IK,png where K represents key (encrypted/password secured), which is colour coded. I will add colour coding for also for psk/non-psk/other Authentication Suites at some point - this will be the icon background colour, so must use svg icons with variables seems to me the best solution, also for adding status text to svg icons.

In the next addition I have re-activated /etc/resolv.conf.tail/head creation if data exists, in the static ip section, simply add two more nameservers. If first nameserver is 0.0.0.0 then system scripts will generate one.
Code:
wlan0 192.168.1.19 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 8.8.8.8  9.9.9.9
